Margin of Certainty: from Veganism to Activism
Sunday, January 24 (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM)
The Let Live Foundation presents: Margin of Certainty: from Veganism to Activism at Matt Dishman Community Center, (77 NE Knott St, Portland, Classroom A). The event is free.
It is absolutely necessary that vegans extend their advocacy to beyond just their meals, and speak up for animals in their daily lives. If everyone did just one thing a day for animals -- one thing that can easily fit into your life as you know it -- perhaps we'd exit the margin of error, wake up the rest of the world to the fact that veganism is a moral imperative and animal rights is a must, and create real change.
This will be an interactive workshop led by Jasmin Singer, Farm Sanctuary's campaigns manager. Jasmin last visited Portland when she spoke at the 2009 Let Live Northwest Animal Rights Conference. She is one of the voices behind the blogs "Making Hay" and "VEGdaily," and her writing has also appeared in blogs such as "Crazy Sexy Life" and "Civil Eats," as well as print publications like Satya and Heeb. Jasmin is also a contributor to VegNews Magazine. She has presented at numerous conferences including Taking Action for Animals, SUNY Social Justice Conference, and Farm Sanctuary's Hoe Down.
