ABOUT THE EVENT
Please join the Buffalo Vegetarian Society and Animal Advocates of WNY for a slideshow presentation by Jenny Brown, co-founder and president of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and author of “The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight for Farm Animals.”
Jenny Brown was just ten years old when she lost a leg to bone cancer. Throughout the ordeal, her constant companion was a cat named Boogie. Years later, she would make the connection between her feline friend and the farm animals she ate, acknowledging that most of America’s domesticated animals live on industrialized farms, and are viewed as mere production units. Raised in a conservative Southern Baptist family in Kentucky, Brown had been taught to avoid asking questions. But she found her calling and the courage to speak out. She left a flourishing career as a film and television producer after going undercover and exposing horrific animal abuse in Texas stockyards.
Signed copies of Jenny's new book, "The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight for Farm Animals" will be available for purchase.

VEGAN POTLUCK RECEPTION:
If you and/or your guests are participating in the potluck reception, each person is required to bring a VEGAN dish to share that feeds 6 - 8 people. Please ensure that is it animal free. VEGAN means no beef, poultry and fish. It also means no dairy or eggs. Please watch for hidden dairy products like casein and whey. Jell-o and marshmallows are NOT vegan.
Please bring your recipe to share with others by printing it on a small card (around 3x5 or 4x6) and placing it next to your dish.
