Nick will also discuss pointers on how we can more effectively persuade our friends, family, and neighbors to care about farm animals.
Nick Cooney is the founder of The Humane League and the Compassionate Communities Campaign Manager for Farm Sanctuary, the country's largest farm animal protection organization. He is also the author of Change of Heart:  What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change.

    Omg! Nick is so fantastic and he certainly keeps me on track as an animal advocate!! Love his book " Change of Heart" and if you really want to help animals, buy his book which comes highly recommended by Dr. Melanie Joy! This the highest recommendation ever!! Thank you oh so kind sac vegan society members for coming to hear Nick!!! You are the ethical vegans and the true meaning is what you understands! I started for health reasons but realized soon that it was animal suffering that motivates me to keep going!!
