Two Upcoming Debates/Discussions

Dear Colleagues:

I have two debates/discussions coming up:

Debate on Vivisection

On March 8, I will debate Dario Ringach, Professor of Neurobiology and Psychology at UCLA. The debate will be at Rutgers University and will be open to all members of the Rutgers community and members of the public if space permits. Professor Ringach and I will debate whether vivisection can be morally justified. He maintains it can be justified; I maintain it cannot be. It is my hope that this debate, which will be moderated by Dean John Farmer, will help people to think more critically about vivisection and to oppose it. Professor Ringach obviously hopes to the contrary. May the best arguments win!

The debate will be held in the evening at Rutgers University School of Law in Newark and I will post further details as soon as I have them.

Debate on Animal Advocacy

I have been informed that Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary would like to have a public discussion with me about animal advocacy. I am delighted to discuss this topic with Gene and I have offered a live moderated event at Rutgers University or a moderated podcast. I will post further details as soon as they are available.

If you are not vegan, go vegan. It’s easy; it’s better for your health and for the planet. But, most important, it’s the morally right thing to do. You will never do anything else in your life as easy and satisfying.

The World is Vegan! If you want it.
