With Mother’s Day fast approaching, it is that time of year to recognize the love, caring and compassion that mothers represent – human or non-human. Mary-Chris Staples of Liberation BC joins us to speak about their upcoming Cow Ribbon Campaign to bring awareness to all the issues that cows experience in the dairy industry, and having their motherhood taken away. Please visit http://cowribbon.comfor more information about this campaign and to get your ribbon.
