It has been literally decades since I last heard Ingrid Newkirk (of PETA fame) speak. She is coming to Denver and in fact, by a quirk of fate, speaking at Denver University on Thursday, August 22, just a few blocks from where I live. She’ll be at the Ritchie Center, fourth floor, Gottesfeld Room, at 7:30 p. m. Ingrid’s talks are always controversial and inspiring; they also frequently sell out, so if you are interesting in hearing her, you should buy your tickets soon. You can do that by going to this PETA website.
For several years, the animal rights movement in the Denver area has perhaps not been as effective as it could be, and I am hopeful that this event will generate some new energy that will go in a positive direction to help animals everywhere.
