Factory Farming Problems & Solutions with Lynn Henning (Virtual Presentation)

Link visible for attendees

VegMichigan’s focus is to promote a plant-based diet but factory farming is a growing problem in Michigan and it is important that we also work on this issue to help better regulate and hopefully, one day, end factory farming in Michigan.

Lynn Henning is the Field Operations Team Director for the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project. Lynn emerged as a leading voice calling on state and federal authorities to hold livestock factory farms accountable to water and air quality laws. With her husband, she farms 300 acres in Lenawee County, Michigan, within 10 miles of 12 CAFOs. As a result of her work to stop pollution from factory farms and to hold state and federal agencies accountable to enforcing laws, Lynn won the 2010 Goldman Environmental Prize—the environmental equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

Please join us for this important presentation to learn more and, if you are interested, you can join VegMichgan’s factory farming workgroup.

Virtual Book Club Q&A WITH CO-AUTHOR of Think Like a Vegan

Link visible for attendees

For our February Book Club, we are pleased to be joined by Emilia A. Leese, co-author of Think Like a Vegan: What Everyone Can Learn from Vegan Ethics (co-written by Eva J. Charalambides, 2021). We had planned to discuss chapters 1-3, but now that an author will be joining us, we will spend most of the time talking with her about the book. Please send questions for her in advance to [masked], or bring them with you to the discussion. Please try to read at least some of the book before the meeting. The Book Club will discuss the book further at our May meeting (date TBD).

Book description: "What is animal agriculture, and what is its impact on the environment? ... What's the problem with organic meat? What are the economics of plant-based foods? What about honey? ... What is the relationship between veganism and feminism? ... From basic fairness to politics, economics, love and other aspects of being human, Think Like a Vegan invites the reader to set aside their preconceived notions about veganism, and to enter into an invigorating conversation about your daily ethical decisions." (from the cover)

The Book Club is a collaboration between Attorneys for Animals and VegMichigan. Please register for the Zoom meeting at https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMkduqupzovGdxjoWKPSBd6JoY2s2sQF-2H. After you register, you will get an email from Zoom with the link for the meeting.
