Hot-Button Campus Issue Promises Lively Evening
For Immediate Release: March 24, 2011

Ann Arbor, Mich. -- In an event that has the entire campus community buzzing, PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich, longtime vegan, will spar with members of the University of Michigan's Ethics Bowl team over the ethics of eating animals. Friedrich will make the case that all University of Michigan students should go vegan—or at least vegetarian—because eating meat is inconsistent with the beliefs that they already likely hold about sustainability, world hunger, and animal rights.
When: Friday, March 25, 3 p.m.
Where: Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
"This is one of the most hotly debated issues of our time," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Nearly one in four college students is now demanding vegan meals at school, and if anyone can hammer home the arguments in favor of a vegan diet, Bruce can."
A seasoned debater, Friedrich has faced off against representatives of the fur, meat, and animal-experimentation industries for more than a decade. He also won a top spot while competing on the Showtime reality series American Candidate.
The debate—titled "Is Eating Meat Ethical?"—will be hosted by peta2, PETA's youth division, and is open to the public. Friedrich has recently participated in similar debates at Harvard University, Yale University, Brigham Young University, and the University of Texas as part of peta2's latest strategy to make animal rights one of the hottest topics on college campuses.
