Cowspiracy, Free Screening At NYU
By Raffaella Ciavatta“Real social change can be built and will be built when a solid sense of community is established and strengthened. We are here to raise awareness, educate and promote action towards abolishing violence, discrimination, inequality and exploitation while building stronger, inclusive and forward-thinking communities.”
If you know us by now, you know that we are all about making sure YOU take the lead!
On September 18 2014, Collectively Free and The Student Legal Animal Defense Fund helped organize this event because we want to empower you, we want to inspire all of you to be part of real social change.
Watch the video below to see our process in putting up the event, watch our speakers Robert Jensen, organizer for Collectively Free, Direct Action Everywhere NY, and NY Farm Animal Save, Neal Sehgal, founder of Evolve for Animals, and a Q&A session.
We would also like to thank our sponsors Terri, Beyond Meat, Neat Meat, Upton’s Naturals and Tompkins Square Bagels for providing us with great food and giveaways. A very warm thank you to the Cowspiracy Team and to all of you who donated. We raised $209 which were redirected it all to The Animals United Movement, the non-profit behind Cowspiracy.
