program date: 
Sun, 02/01/2009


Host Becca Bartleson speaks with Erin Williams, communications director from The Humane Society of the United States and co-author of Why Animals Matter: The Case for Animal Protection, and communications director for The Humane Society of the United States' factory farming campaign. Erin will be signing copies of her book and giving a presentation called "Why Farm Animals Matter"on Tuesday, February 3, from 7:00 pm - 8:30 p.m. at Portland State University Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 101

Why Animals Matter examines how people abuse animals, gives suggestions on how to take action, and connects animal protection, environmental and social justice issues. Publishers Weekly praised the book as "a tough but fair-minded revelation of how mass production of animals for food and other purposes results in cruelty that usually remains hidden from sight."



This event is co-sponsored by Northwest VEGVegans for Animal Advocacy, and the Let Live Foundation.  For more information about Williams' book, visit





Isn't it more cruel, to limit food choices to starving populations ? Cruelty has many faces..

Darling Versfutility, We

Darling Versfutility,

We could feed countless persons with the grain that gets pumped into factory farmed animals. To feed the starving a steak is not the answer. We need sustainability.
