In partnership with Chapman’s Philosophy Department and Food Science Program, Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur will speak about animal agriculture starting at 7 p.m. Oct. 14.
Farm Sanctuary is an animal protection organization that rescues and advocates for farm animals. The organization is headquartered in New York with three shelters: one in New York and two in California.
Baur has been a leading advocate for animal rights, fighting for animal-friendly legislation and working to raise awareness of abuse in factory farming.
Time magazine called Baur “the conscious of the food movement.”
Baur will be Chapman’s guest as part of the “Philosophy Talks” series, which brings in scholars, authors and activists to discuss major issues.
Copies of Baur’s latest book, “Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day,” will be sold at the talk. A book signing is planned.
