PLEASE WEAR BLACK and join us Saturday to protest environmental/dietary racism, speciesism and governmental corruption!

Cows and Bulls are not machines to exploit as we wish. They’re victims of violence and systemic abuse thanks to tens of billions of dollars in corporate welfare every year. It’s time to shift the subsidies to a better food system and Let Dairy Die!

Since 2019, DxE’s campaign to #LetDairyDie has called for an end of federal subsidies that support an industry that exploits workers and consumers, accelerates the climate crisis and causes unfathomable violence against animals. While this message has reached millions through mainstream news and media, the effort faces a new obstacle in the continued favoritism of dairy lobbyist serving as the head of the US department of agriculture.

Please join us for a creative action that calls on Secretary of Agriculture and longtime dairy lobbyist Tom Vilsack to shift federal subsidies away from animal cruelty and dietary racism and toward helping our farmers and food system transition into a just one.
