Lee Hall Speaks Out on Climate Disruption and the Animal Advocate’s Leadership Role

Lee Hall Speaks Out on Climate Disruption and the Animal Advocate’s Leadership Role

At this year’s vegetarian Summerfest, Friends of Animals legal director Lee Hall will present a plenary talk on vegetarians as the perfect leaders in an era of climate disruption.

Meat and dairy consumption is on the rise worldwide. Our governments ensure that we all subsidize animal agribusiness; universities teach animal husbandry; and in school lunch hours, young students choose between a salami sandwich, turkey salad, or pepperoni bagel bites. What’s an activist to do?

Lee’s talk will explore the question, and the urgency of finding answers.

Secrets for Success Every Vegetarian Advocate Should Know

Assisted by Lee, Friends of Animals president Priscilla Feral will present a lively workshop to share the best of experience gained by 30 years of experience! Lee and Priscilla will discuss fundraising, time management, and public outreach. As an exciting extra in the workshop, Priscilla and Lee will be joined by Dave Lajeunesse and Jan Lajeunesse, who will relate their experiences starting the New York Capital Region’s annual Vegetarian Expo with the support of several speakers known from Summerfest. This workshop promises to be instructive and empowering.
