Join the Cleveland Animal Rights Alliance for a FREE vegan dinner and a screening of the acclaimed documentary Vegucated!
Vegucated is a feature-length documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Part sociological experiment, part science class, and part adventure story, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time.

What Really Matters
Free Presentation with JoAnn Farb
When: Mon, July 6 from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Where: Lakewood Library, 15425 Detroit Ave, Lakewood OH (basement auditorium)
For those who care, humanity’s challenges can seem overwhelming, because most of what people do to make things better is merely hacking at the branches without recognizing and seeking to address THE fundamental challenge, from which all our problems spring. But a recap of history shows 1) We ARE making moral progress and 2) What the REAL fundamental challenge facing humanity is – which when addressed will positively impact everything else we are struggling with. This fast paced presentation will enlighten and inspire you, while providing insight as to how to make your life really count.
