Next week, on Wednesday, October 14 at 7p, Gene Baur, co-founder and President of Farm Sanctuary, a truly remarkable human being, is coming to Chapman University in Orange. He is addressing, and has been for almost 30 years now, some of the things we don’t talk about very much, but really need to give more thought to. I am extremely excited about this event!
Did you see the clip of him a few months back when he was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart? If not, you can see it here.
Also on October 14, at noon, we will be down the street from Chapman at the Orange Circle for a Climate Rally. We planned the Gene Baur event date several months ago and then People’s Climate Movement put out a call for a day of National Action on the same date. For those who aren’t aware, animal agriculture is hugely destructive for the environment, especially when it comes to critical climate issues. It seemed perfect for these two events to wind up occurring on the same day.
In honor of Gene being in town, several of the restaurants between the Orange Circle and Chapman will be participating with us by offering a vegan entrée on October 14th. We hope you will have a post-rally lunch, or an early dinner before the Gene Baur event (or both) at one of these participating restaurants to show support for their efforts. I will include the list in the next email, so make sure to watch for that. We will also post it on the OCCA web site very soon.
RSVP for one or both events:
I can’t wait and I sure hope you will be there too.
Thank you for staying engaged,
