Free Vegan Dinner & Presentation with Rae Sikora

When:  Wed, November 19 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Where:  Cleveland Heights Library, 2345 Lee Rd, Cleveland Hts OH 

Join the Cleveland Animal Rights Alliance and the Cleveland Vegan Society as we co-host a free vegan dinner and presentation with Rae Sikora from Plant Peace Daily. 

Lack of intelligence has been used as a justification for treating non-human species as unfeeling, unthinking objects to be used at the whim of humans.  This program will look at the intelligence of our non-human relatives through amazing true stories from around the world and interactive activities.  

Rae Sikora has been a spokesperson for animals, the environment and human rights for over 30 years.  Her programs have been changing people's vision of what is possible to create in our lives and in the world.  Rae has worked interntationally with participants ranging from teachers, students and prisoners to businesses and activists.  As co-founder of the Institute for Humane Education, Rae created interactive critical thinking tools that are now being used by people around the globe.  She holds degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Environmental Education from the University of Wisconsin.  Rae draws from years of experience to help individuals and groups discover how implementing changes personally/locally can bring about positive change globally.  She is co-founder/co-director of Plant Peace Daily and co-founder of VegFund.  Additionally, Rae was recently inducted into the North American Vegetarian Society's Hall of Fame.

"Rae Sikora has a unique talent to educate, entertain, and elighten all at the same time.  She never leaves a group without adding them to her circle of friends.  If Rae was in charge of the world we would be living in peace."

~ Howard Lyman, Founder - Voice for a Viable Future, Author of the books "Mad Cowboy" & "No More Bull"
