Vegan Chews & Progressive News {9-18-15}

Chickpeas & Changes’s “Vegan Chews & Progressive News” series strives to promote vegan food (an outgrowth of anti-speciesism) and progressive discussion of social issues—both of which I view as important in fostering a society that prioritizes the well-being of all creatures (not just the rich, white, or human) over the continuous striving for profit/resource accumulation.

Just a reminder that Chickpeas & Change accepts submissions from the community! Check out this page for submission guidelines.

Hi, folks! Sorry about last week–the school year is picking up in a big way, and I’ve had to sacrifice a bit of my blog duties to keep my head screwed on right (more on that on Monday). But here! Look! It’s another edition of Vegan Chews & Progressive News (# NewsandChews)! No commentary today because, you know, school is my life now…but! I’ll see you on the flipside of the weekend. Enjoy!
