One of the main approaches that CCA take in the support of the care of all God’s creation is the promotion of an animal cruelty free diet. We promote vegetarian and vegan diets as a mainstay of our work and I have given interviews and talks where this aspect of CCA thought is a central theme.
Vegetarianism has become more widely catered for and accepted in modern society, although there is still a long way to go, however veganism is still much less understood and catered for in supermarkets, restaurants, and in daily life,etc.
It is with great interest and pleasure then that I note that an active and long standing vegan, Kerry McCarthy MP has been appointed to the very high public office of Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. I understand that she was the very first vegan ever elected to the House of Commons when she won the seat of Bristol East in 2005 and she has previously set out the case in Parliament for converting to veganism on World Vegan Day in 2011.
CCA are aware that she has a very strong record on Animal Welfare issues and we would like to congratulate her on her promotion to her new role.
