What:    PETA President Ingrid Newkirk will share what it means to be an unstoppable force for animals in a special address hosted by actor James Cromwell in New York that highlights PETA’s motto: “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.” The lively event, which is part of an international speaking tour titled “Unstoppable,” contains New York–specific highlights of the animal rights movement and will include the unveiling of Yeezy model Amina Blue‘s new ad campaign, which states, “Wear Vegan. Be Vegan.”

 When:    Thursday, March 30, 7 p.m.

Where:    West Side YMCA, 5 W. 63rd St. (at Central Park West), New York City

“An orangutan used in a stage show, an elephant in a circus boxcar, a cow suffering on a factory farm, and a monkey in a laboratory cage rely on compassionate people to speak up,” says Newkirk. “PETA illustrates how sticking our necks out for animals can change the world.”

Newkirk and PETA are no strangers to New York. She famously lay naked in Times Square (as shown in the HBO award-winning documentary about her, I Am an Animal) and answered Anna Wintour’s phones with “Vogue is closed due to cruelty” during an anti-fur protest at the editor’s office—and the group recently challenged dog breeders at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, targeted Michael Kors’ use of fur during Fashion Week, protested the opening of Canada Goose’s SoHo store, and ran an anti-wool billboard starring Alicia Silverstone, among other efforts.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
