Dallas – On October 25, PETA President and founder Ingrid Newkirk will take her speaking tour to Dallas. Newkirk’s unique and thought-provoking talk “We Are All Animals” explains how everyone can make a difference and why PETA—whose motto reads, “Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview.

When:    Friday, October 25, 7 p.m.

Where:    The Venue at 400 North Ervay, 400 N. Ervay St., (near the intersection with Federal Street) Dallas, 75201

“Since its founding in 1980, PETA’s message has been that when it comes to feelings such as pain, hunger, and thirst, a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy,” says Newkirk. “Some of us may have feathers, some of us may have fins, and some of us may have just the skin we were born in, but every living, feeling being deserves respect and understanding.”

During the event, Newkirk will discuss her signature boundary-pushing brand of activism—which includes hanging naked from a meat hook at the age of 67 to protest killing animals for food—as well as PETA’s landmark victories for animals and the group’s recent efforts in Dallas. Delicious vegan treats and beverages will be served immediately after her talk.

“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
