Mercy For Animals Expands

The non-profit animal advocacy group is spreading its wings.

Mercy For Animals (MFA) has made some incredible moves throughout the years, from nixing egg products in Boca burgers to reaching myriads of people with a veg message. Its next move is another hugely beneficial one: MFA is expanding to New York City. The New York Advocacy Center will be located in central Manhattan and will act as a home for volunteer and intern work, provide access to MFA literature and the latest news, and hold vegan cooking classes and workshops. MFA’s New York Campaign Director Lydia Chaudhry will be leading the way and reaching out to the enormous NYC population. Chaudhry comes from a thorough background in ethical veganism, even having graduated from The Natural Gourmet Institute. This is one big expansion headed in the right direction!
