Join Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan (www.ourhenhouse.org) as they discuss the multitude of ways we can each change the world for animals through food activism. Whether it’s baking compassionate cupcakes for your office party, hosting a tofu-dog feed-in on the Fourth of July, or writing a letter to the editor regarding the blatant oversight of veganism in a “green foods” article, there is a way in for each of us when it comes to using food as a political statement and a tool for change. In this workshop, you will leave with the delicious resources necessary to incorporate advocacy into your everyday lives, using little more than an oven mitt.
Join us after the discussion for a reception featuring yummy vegan treats.
Jasmin Singer is the director and co-founder of Our Hen House (www.ourhenhouse.org), a multimedia hive to change the world for animals.
