Friends of Animals’ Campaigns Director, Edita Birnkrant, gave the hard-hitting presentation, “Is It Enough to Say 'Go Vegan' or 'End Factory Farming?” at the San Francisco World Vegetarian Festival on Oct. 12, 2014.

Edita’s multi-layered talk deconstructs the “humane meat” myth, and why it’s crucially important that advocacy go beyond the “End Factory Farming” rhetoric, to implicate all animal farming — responsible for environmental degradation, wildlife annihilation and human disease. Edita positions a Vegan Diet as the antidote to the disease of animal farming. She also details why Palm Oil is so destructive, and what we can all do about it as caring consumers — plus identifying pressing wildlife issues that need our attention beyond just eating a vegan diet.
