[act-ma] Free Discussion Group on Animal Ethics and Advocacy (Starting Jan. 10)
jasonketola at gmail.com
Fri Nov 13 13:38:56 PST 2009
Are you a vegan interested in better understanding the philosophies
underpinning the different segments of the modern animal
rights/protection 'movement'? Interested in reading about and discussing
what the right and best sort(s) of advocacy are?
If so, consider participating in a free discussion group on these very
topics. There will be seven meetings at which topics pertinent to above
questions will be discussed. (Note: The discussion group meetings are
run seminar style by two facilitators with philosophy and activism
backgrounds. The meetings are not lecture-based.) Six of the meetings
will involve assigned readings from three people who have significantly
influenced contemporary animal ethics and the different advocacy
strategies of the 'movement': Tom Regan, Peter Singer, and Gary Francione.
The meetings will occur on the following Sunday afternoons: 1/10, 1/24,
2/7, 2/21, 3/7, and 3/21 (seventh date to be determined by group). The
location will be determined based on participants' preferences but will
be conveniently located in the Boston area.
Please contact me, Jason (jasonketola at gmail.com), if you're interested
in participating or with any questions.
(If you are *not vegan* but are interested in learning about and
discussing animal ethics and veganism, please also contact Jason right
away about an introductory-level discussion group to be held on Sunday,
