Forks Over Knives

"Forks Over Knives" Film Screening

Thursday, July 19, 6-8pm

Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.

Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive, but so straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?

Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn

Cowspiracy

"Cowspiracy" Film Screening

Thursday, August 16, 6-8pm

cowspiracy.png

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he increasingly uncovers what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.

As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.

Advancing Animal Welfare through the Legislative Process in NJ

Advancing Animal Welfare through the Legislative Process in New Jersey

 Brian Hackett, New Jersey State Director, The Humane Society of the United States

 Tuesday, April 10th 2018, 6:00 – 8:00 PM

St. Hubert’s Community Room, 575 Woodland Avenue, Madison, NJ

One of the key ways to help animals is to lobby for them in the halls of our nation’s state legislatures. On all levels of government—local, county, state, and federal—better laws to protect animals and advance their welfare are integral to preventing cruelty. Hear about what key laws NJ has passed and which ones are on the docket for consideration this year. An animal advocate who engages with their elected officials on all levels can help achieve extraordinary successes for animals, and give a voice to the voiceless in our legislative process.

As New Jersey State Director for the Humane Society of the United States, the largest animal protection organization in the country, Brian Hackett has worked to advance the organization’s animal protection priorities on the state level. Working on all levels of government—local, county, and in Trenton at the Capitol—Hackett has placed an emphasis on effective collaboration with many different stakeholders to advance policies better protecting animals. On the local level, he has played a leading role in advancing the most local anti-puppy mill measures of any state in the nation, with 116 NJ municipalities and 9 counties recognizing the problem puppy mills pose to consumers and animals. A key priority is protection of our nation’s millions of community cats, so Hackett has worked to advance support for humane management through Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) policies with our counties and municipalities
