Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows

Here is the official info for the Melanie Joy event this Sunday.

Please do not respond to the email list with questions.  I am not the organizer (I can't even go because of a prior obligation), I'm just passing on the info.  Please contact the church if you have any questions that can't be answered by the flyer.  Thanks!

Melanie Joy, Ph.D. Ed.M. is a Harvard-educated psychologist and professor of psychology and sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.  Dr. Joy has written articles on psychology, animal protection, and social justice, as well as the acclaimed Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism, and Strategic Action for Animals.


Carnism is the invisible belief system that conditions us to eat certain animals, and to unknowingly act against our own interests. By illuminating carnism, Dr. Joy helps us become more empowered citizens and active social witnessesAudiences appreciate her accessible, engaging and level-headed approach, regardless of their dietary choices. Ages 15 & up.

Free and Open to the Public

See you on 7 & 8 July 2012!

Think of me tonight, for that which you savor. 
Did it give you something real, or could you taste the pain of my death in its flavor?
    ~Wayne K. Tolson "Food Forethought"

~ Animals have their own voices, but few listen.  
   Those of us who hear them, must help them to be heard. ~

Get involved!  The World is run by people who show up.  ~Unknown
