Paul Shapiro speaks about Farm Animal Protection

Wednesday, Nov. 6th at 7:30pm


Paul Shapiro is the VP of the Farm Animal Protection Department at the Humane Society of the United States, and is considered the authority on farm animal welfare and animal advocacy. He has played an integral role in numerous successful legislative and corporate campaigns to improve the plight of farm animals.

He founded Compassion Over Killing in 1995 and served as its campaigns director until January 2005. While there, he worked as a farm animal cruelty investigator and led initiatives such as the successful effort to end the use of the misleading “Animal Care Certified” logo on battery cage egg cartons nationwide.

Join us as he speaks about his work and how we can help farm animals by incorporating more plant-based foods into our diets.

Movie Night! Food, Inc. 

Nov. 13, 2013 8:00pm (after the body meeting)

Join us right after the Body Meeting to watch and discuss the engaging, classic film Food, Inc.
Watch the Trailer Here!

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA.

Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.

We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
