More Than Meats The Eye by Jenny Brown –
April 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pmFree
We are incredibly excited to welcome Jenny Brown to Spring Farm Sanctuary!
Jenny Brown is a longtime animal rights activist and Founder of Woodstock Farm Sanctuary in New York—one the country’s most recognized and respected sanctuaries for farmed animals. She previously worked in film and television, until she went undercover in Texas to document farmed animal abuse. That experience led her to dedicate her life to helping farm animals. After 12 years, Jenny left the sanctuary to focus on a full-time national lecture tour, raising awareness about the plight of animals used and abused in food production. Jenny’s story and the work of the sanctuary has been featured in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, CNN, The Diane Rehm Show and more. She is the author of The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight For Farm Animals. (Learn more at speakerjennybrown.com Tickets are limited and will sell quickly, so please get yours today!
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
On Earth Day Jenny will be delivering her powerful presentation, More Than Meats The Eye, at Spring Farm Sanctuary.
We live in a meat and dairy-centric society, where 99% of animal products come from factory farms, where animals live short, painful lives—almost 10 billion in 2016 in the US, and 56 billion worldwide. Factory farms employ abusive practices that maximize profits at the expense of the environment, our communities, animal welfare, and our health. Farmed animals are ever-present in our daily lives as food and clothing, yet they are almost entirely invisible in our society.
Jenny’s presentation will challenge you to take a closer look at our food system and the truths behind it. No matter our dietary choices, thinking about what is at stake with eating animals allows us to critically examine our traditions, our culture(s), and the relationship between us and the world. It forces us to think about our consumption habits and the ethics of our everyday choices.
BRING AN OMNIVORE FOR FREE!
Tickets to the presentation are $9 – however, if you’re a vegan/vegetarian who brings an omnivore friend, your ticket is only $5 and their ticket is free! At Spring Farm Sanctuary, we believe the best way to help people change their minds is by connecting with their hearts. Therefore, we want to encourage everyone to come to this presentation to hear firsthand about the importance of a plant-based diet and the positive effects this diet has on animals, our health and our planet.
Sorry, no refunds – if you cannot make the presentation your ticket price will be donated to the care of our animals.
