Free Cowspiracy Screening

November 2

Want to see Cowspiracy but missed it at the Portland appearances? There will be a FREE showing at the First Unitarian Church on Sunday, Nov. 2nd at 1 PM in the Eliot Center, 1011 SW 12th, corner of SW 12th and Salmon St. Plan to stay for a short discussion afterward. Light snacks served starting at 12:30 but no food allowed in the screening area. This will be a perfect chance to see the film if you catch co-producer Keegan Kuhn's Q&A presentation at the NW VEG October Westside Portland Potluck. Cowspiracy is the 'game changer' film that clearly demonstrates the impacts of animal agriculture against a backdrop mystery of why this information has taken so long to attain a higher priority within mainstream environmental organizations.
