Detroit – On Friday, a flock of PETA “chicks” wearing faux-feather tutus and headbands and holding signs reading, “Turkeys Go Wild for Tofurky,” will gather at the corner of W. Warren and Woodward avenues in the Motor City to pass out free vegan Tofurky roasts and help passersby kick-start a “ThanksVegan” celebration that leaves turkeys in peace and in one piece.
When: Friday, November 10, 12 noon
Where: 4999 Woodward Ave., Detroit
As part of its pro-turkey blitz, PETA is also erecting a sky-high appeal just a stone’s throw away at 4809 Woodward Ave.—along the America’s Thanksgiving Parade route—urging everyone to give birds a break and enjoy a delicious “ThanksVegan” feast instead.
“Turkeys are individuals who feel pain and fear, experience joy, value their lives, and don’t want to be carved up and stuffed any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is urging everyone to show a little mercy, keep turkeys off the table, and tuck into savory and satisfying vegan roasts that give everyone something to be thankful for.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and offers a “ThanksVegan” guide packed with recipes, cooking tips, and everything else needed to enjoy a delicious, turkey-friendly holiday.
