We're trying something new - a Northwest VEG dine-out with a great speaker included. Nick Cooney, the author of Change of Heart, and currently the manager of Farm Sanctuary's Compassionate Communities program, is in town, and will join us at Veggie Grill downtown for dinner and a talk. Nick's book Change of Heart is all about what psychology can tell us about spreading social change, an he will be using that information as the basis of his talk to us: Effective Animal Advocacy 101. It should be a fascinating talk, and Veggie Grill has great all-vegan food. Come join us Wednesday Sept. 26. This is a joint event held in conjunction with Farm Sanctuary and Portland Animal Welfare Advocates.
