Dine-out at Veggie Grill and Nick Cooney talk

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.

    I admit I waffled at the last minute whether or not to go, but I'm glad I did. Nick is a great speaker; he's efficient and organized, and he kept my interest the entire time. He spoke for about 40 minutes and then took a few questions, and he succintly laid out why and how we can all be effective animal-rights advocates to others, whether that be one person or a hundred people.

    I've RSVPed but I'll be a few minutes late. I have class at PSU until 6:30, but I'll be there immediately after!
