County Adopts VegWeek

Marin County, Calif., adopted a weeklong veg pledge in memory of its former supervisor.

The Board of Supervisors in Marin County, Calif., have unanimously adopted a California VegWeek resolution in honor of Charles McGlashan, the former Marin County supervisor who passed away this past March. McGlashan, a vegetarian and animal-rights activist, was a strong supporter of Compassion Over Killing’s (COK) VegWeek campaign, and the county decided to pass the resolution in his honor. COK’s VegWeek is a pledge to eat only vegetarian food from April 18 to 24. Elected officials and organizations from California, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, are all participating in this year’s pledge.
