A presentation by Gene Bauston.

Whenever we sit down to eat, we make choices that have a wide ranging impact on ourselves and others. Eating with conscience promotes compassion, justice, and good health. Failing to do so contributes to disease, degradation of the environment, and an indifference to suffering and death. This presentation discusses how violence associated with animal food production contributes to the overall violence found in our society and throughout the world.

Gene Bauston is cofounder and president of Farm Sanctuary, America${q}s leading farm animal protection organization. He has initiated groundbreaking legal enforcement and legislative action to prevent farm animal abuse and played an important role in passing laws in the U.S. that explicitly prohibit cruel farming practices. His efforts have been covered by leading news organizations, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, NPR, ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN. He holds a master${q}s degree in agricultural economics from Cornell University. For more information, visit: http://FarmSanctuary.org.
