Sep 18: Keep Animals Off Drugs! kickoff event

Food and Water Watch’s Pittsburgh Kick-Off Meeting for Keep Animals off Drugs!

Factory farms across the country pump animals with drugs to make them grow faster, leading to the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that threaten the effectiveness of drugs we rely on to save lives.

Right now, we have a unique opportunity to stop this reckless abuse of antibiotics. The PARA bill, which was just introduced to the senate, could end factory-farm misuse of these life-saving drugs. We need Senator Casey to champion this bill and the common-sense idea it represents: the life-saving properties of antibiotics should be preserved for people, not squandered for corporate profit. Together we can show Senator Casey that Pittsburgh wants him to step up.

So please join us at our kick-off meeting on September 18th, 6:30pm. Find out more about the campaign and what you can do to help. With your support, we can stop factory farms from compromising the antibiotics we depend on!

6:30pm at the Carnegie Library's East Liberty Branch  (130 S Whitfield St) RSVP HERE to let them know you can make it, and bring a friend!  (MarensNote:  that link isn't currently live;  if that's still the case when you try, you can also contact Áine Sweetnam for more information.
