Ingrid Newkirk Speaks in Dallas
Okay--so Ingrid Newkirk is extreme. "A necessary tactic in order to get noticed and change the world," so she puts it.
But regardless of how you feel about the president and cofounder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the world's largest animal rights organization, it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to hear Ingrid Newkirk speak in person!
Newkirk will be in town next week signing and discussing her newest book The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights: Simple Acts of Kindness to Help Animals in Trouble. The book provides tips and resources to connect with a whole new community of animal lovers.
The event will be held on Tuesday, June 23, at 7 PM at Barnes and Noble (7700 West Northwest Hwy. Ste. 300).
A note to all you young activists: leave your red paint at home. This will be a civilized event. And don't be shocked when you learn that Ingrid is not quite the monster the media has made her out to be. Sorry ;)
