Please join us for our next Let Live event!

Sunday, March 21, 2010 / 1:15-3:00pm
Matt Dishman Community Center (77 Northeast Knott Street, Portland, OR)
Free. Open to everybody.

lauren Ornelas, Founder and Director of the Food Empowerment Project, will be discussing how to use food choices to create a more just world.

Eating a vegan diet is certainly the first step in that direction, but do you drink soda or eat chocolate? Learn about how what you eat and drink might not be connected to animal exploitation but might indeed have direct connections to human exploitation!

Also learn about the unjust food system that currently exists in the U.S. regarding access to healthy foods.

lauren has been involved in the animal rights movement for more than 20 years and has done undercover investigations of factory farms and conducted successful campaigns against corporations such as Trader Joe's and Pier 1 Imports.
