The Pollination Project Lisa Shapiro Awards Winners 2017 ~ Ms. Socorro 'Sukie' Muller Sargent

In the early 1990’s, at the age of 55,  Sukie, a Mexican born woman living in Texas and married to a hunter, made a life-changing choice to go vegan! She then went on to start the first animal advocacy group in El Paso along with The Vegetarian Society of El Paso.

The animal advocacy group Sukie started had their first meeting in her home in September 1992. There were eleven attendees, plus two from a group across the border in Mexico. 
They organised a variety of campaigns. They protested the annual rattlesnake roundup in New Mexico. They freed a 125- year-old lobster, and sent him to Maine, where CNN was waiting to film his release into the sea.

Sukie’s group has become a resource for people not only in Texas but also in nearby New Mexico. They organise Thanksgiving events that hundreds of people attend every year.
