Jasmin’s Speech at the NYC Walk for Farm Animals

By Mariann Sullivan — October 24, 2011

I was kvelling yesterday when Jasmin gave a short, impassioned speech at the NYC Walk for Farm Animals, benefiting Farm Sanctuary. Jasmin and I both have a long history with Farm Sanctuary — I used to be on the board, and Jasmin used to be the campaigns manager (as well as the National Walk Coordinator). It was a real privilege to be a part of yesterday’s incredibly successful Walk, organized this year by superstars Adrianne Prettyman and Jenn London. There is nothing like being amid hundreds of animal advocates passionate about changing the world for animals.

Below is Jasmin’s speech. I recorded it on on an iPhone, by the way, which is a reminder to me of how easy it can be for anyone to bring attention to animal rights events by getting them online….

    The Walk for Farm Animals was an amazing gathering of compassionate people shining their lights into the dark recesses of animal suffering. Jasmin, your words and passion stoked the fires in my belly. I remember reading Peter Singer's "Animal Factory" in the (I think...), late 1970's, early 80's and then, letting the fires drown under the waters of distraction and life, life, life...and there you were on Sunday, in NYC, striking the match of inspiration! Thank you.

    I missed this year's walk and hope to be back again next year. Great speech, Jasmin. If you can inspire all of us who are already on board the vegan train, I just know that one (or more) of the non-veg passersby in Columbus Circle this weekend was inspired, too!
