Nick will share surprising research from his forthcoming book about who vegetarians are, why people do or don't make the switch, and how to get more people to switch to a cruelty-free diet. Nick will also discuss pointers on how we can more effectively persuade our friends, family, and neighbors to care about farm animals.
Nick Cooney is the founder of The Humane League and the Compassionate Communities Campaign Manager for Farm Sanctuary, the country's largest farm animal protection organization. He is also the author of Change of Heart:  What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change.

    I will try to make it, but this is prime birthday time in my life, so I might have other plans pre-empt this.

    Oops, I needed to change my rsvp to no. I just realized this is the weekend of the Hoe-Down. I'll probably be unpacking. Luckily I'll be seeing him there. Thanks for organizing this! What a special treat!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
