Would you like to discover your “kindness potential,” and see how easy it is to make a difference in the animals’ world through simple choices we make every single day? Come, learn something new, laugh a little, take a peek behind the scenes in the animal industry and look back in history to see how the changes of the past can help us understand and win today’s challenges in the animal protection movement. Ingrid Newkirk is a lively speaker who makes everyone feel welcome and ensures that everyone leaves informed and invigorated.

Q&A Panel: Animal Rights Leadership with animal rights advocates Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA; Dr. Neal Barnard, president of PCRM; Humane Society director Dr. Jonathan Balcombe and Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, moderated by Melissa Karpel
Knowing what’s going on is the best ammunition in the quest for animal protection and animal liberation. Ignorance is industry’s greatest weapon, and spreading the facts will bring exploitative systems crashing to the ground. Join our knowledgeable panel to learn about the plight of animals used in the entertainment, experimentation, clothing, meat and dairy industries and how society is responding to the increasingly large and powerful message of the animal rights movement.

Lecture and Book Signing: Making Kind Choices
Every day, each of us is faced with choices: We can choose to hurt or help, to be cruel or kind. In Making Kind Choices, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk explains how simple choices that we make every day at the dinner table and the grocery-store check-out line can have a life-saving impact on animals.

Packed with green tips on saving the planet, it's the perfect gift for any environmentalist who wants to make every day Earth Day. From soup to sweaters, pets to plants, candles to cosmetics, bug-catching to bedsheets, you'll find valuable information to use all year long. Making Kind Choices makes doing good easy and fun with heartwarming stories, humorous anecdotes and practical tips.
