The Naked Truth: An Animal Rights Radical at Large

Hey all! PETA's Ingrid Newkirk is doing her first cross-country speaking tour. Michelle, co-organizer for this evening, will be working the event and wanted to share. Tickets start at $10 for students ($15 - $20 next tier) and there will be light, vegan snacks and beverages. Here's a link with more info/to buy tickets: https://secure.peta.org/site/SPageNavigator/Naked_Truth_New_York_Homepage.html

I've found Peta to be a fascinating organization and Ingrid Newkirk to be a charismatic figure not without controversy.  It'd be great for us to make her acquaintance and get any of our questions answered in what looks to be a lively evening.  Please read the event description at the link provided above.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Accessibility:  The Kimmel Center at NYU is an accessible venue.  Enter on Washington Square South.  The nearest accessible subway stop is West Fourth/Washington Square.  The elevator will exit you between West 3rd and West 4th on Sixth Avenue.

    Just a reminder to everyone who is planning on going: Tickets are available through the link in the description. It's doubtful that any will be left for sale at the door.

    Ingrid believes that all pit bulls should be killed, extinguished, rather than adopted. How can I sanction somebody like that?

      As for no-kill versus open-admission shelters. It’s true that no-kill shelters have to turn away a lot of animals. Space and budgets only go so far, and most operate at maximum capacity. And some animals spend years if not the rest of their lives there. Those who are perceived to require less work are more likely to be adopted. The issue is a point of contention for us in the AR community; both sides claiming they have the animals’ best interest in mind. Anywho, this could get long, but it is important that we have these conversations and thank you for that (yes, really). In the grand scheme of things, we’re on the same team and have more in common than we do different. If you want to continue the conversation, ask questions, etc, msg me and I'll send you my email.
