I have two workshops coming up and I’d love for you to join me.
First, this week in Lakewood, NJ, I’ll be presenting “From Veganism to Activism” at Georgian Court University. About that workshop:
From Veganism to Activism with Jasmin Singer
Each day, we are given at least three opportunities to practice compassion and to leave cruelty off our plates. Contrary to what some say, adopting a vegan lifestyle does not mean sacrificing anything. In fact, it means quite the opposite: many find veganism opens their world to a universe of yummy foods and like-minded people. Furthermore, a vegan saves over one hundred lives a year. That means that by taking it one step further and advocating for farm animals, you could potentially save thousands of lives. With animal production now responsible for the majority of greenhouse gas emissions; with animal food products responsible for a vast array of diseases that are plaguing our country; and with nearly 10 billion land animals being killed or food each year in our country, isn’t it a moral imperative to go vegan and advocate for farm animals?

Then, in April, I’m excited to be presenting a workshop alongside Matt Rice (of Mercy for Animals) at the Institute for Critical Animal Studies North American Conference. About that workshop:
Why Animal Rights is Central to Social Justice with Jasmin Singer and Matt Rice
In this workshop, presented by Jasmin Singer (Our Hen House) and Matt Rice (Mercy for Animals), you will learn how animal rights directly pertains to all aspects of social justice. This workshop will cover the intersections between animal rights and human rights, and how gender, race, sexual preference, and class are all embodied in animal oppression. We will also explore the direct link between animal oppression and oppression of our planet, and how the only chance to combat global warming is to go vegan. Animal rights is a human rights issue, and vice-versa. This workshop will explore why that is, and how we can work together to end all animal cruelty — including that of both human animals and non-human animals.
What: “Why Animal Rights is Central to Social Justice” at the Institute for Critical Animal Studies North American Conference
