Darryl Darryl McDaniels of Run DMC is being honored today for his foster work. Adopted himself, Darryl set up the Felix Organization this year – to provide a summer camp for children who do not get adopted.

He only recently found out about his own adoption, as he was writing his autobiography six years ago. He writes on his website regarding himself and co-founder Sheila Jaffe, “We are the fortunate children…we got taken home. There are many children who did not. There are many children growing up without parents, in the foster care “system” or with parents who aren’t really equipped. These children do not have the opportunities we had, or parental hands to guide and support them as we did. We want to give to these children. We want to give them what so many of us are lucky enough to take for granted…new opportunities … new adventures.”

The award will be presented tonight by the CCAI, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, at the 2006 Angels in Adoption Gala. Also being honored is Miami Dolphins quarterback Dante Culpepper, former foster child himself.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
