MIRIAM & TONY CHISHOLM (FOUNDERS, NY FARM ANIMAL SAVE)

(Upstairs Presentation Room)
Tony and Miriam Chisholm are the organizers behind NEW YORK FARM ANIMAL SAVE (NYFAS), an all-volunteer group whose mission is to promote the benefits of a vegan, compassionate lifestyle. NYFAS seeks to educate the public through bearing witness, community outreach and education where the main issues are human health, environmental well-being and the suffering of “food” animals. NYFAS concentrates its educational outreach activities in communities and neighborhoods lacking in healthy and nutritional food resources. A sister organization of Toronto Pig Save, they follow a Gandhian love-based approach and hold peaceful vigils to bear witness (and thereby, call attention) to the plight of animals on their way to slaughter. "Our goals are to put glass walls on factory farms, live markets, and slaughterhouses in New York State, and contribute to the public debate about the place of animals in our society." Whether through one-on-one conversation, group action, or their amazing Path Train and billboard sign campaigns, NYFAS is an inclusive group that welcomes all who wish to participate, and their presentation will inspire you to "be the change."
