We are thrilled to announce that on Tuesday, September 20, Kalamazoo will be hosting a true vegan visionary and celebrity, Dr. Will Tuttle. Author of the bestselling The World Peace Diet, Dr. Tuttle will be lecturing on Healing Our World: A Deeper Look at Food at The Wesley Foundation Student Center at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.
In his talk, Dr. Tuttle makes explicit the invisible connections between society's routine abuse of animals and our broad range of problems—psychological and social, as well as health and environmental. He will explore how animal agriculture and our food choices have far greater consequences than most of us realize, especially for social justice.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm, with free refreshments available. The lecture will begin at 7:00 pm., and will be followed by a Q&A. This event is free, but an optional "love donation" will be requested during the Q&A portion of the event. Dr. Tuttle will also be selling copies of The World Peace Diet and his latest book, Circles of Compassion, for $20 (cash / check / credit card accepted).
RSVP requested in advance on our Meetup page. As always, at Vegan Kalamazoo events, everyone is welcome, including vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores.
