Effective Altruism Speaker Series: The End of Animal Farming

Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Wilder Hall (Student Union), 101
135 West Lorain Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Jacy Reese, cofounder of the think tank Sentience Institute, will give a talk on his new book, The End of Animal Farming. 

Much has already been written about the devastating consequences of animal agriculture to the environment, to human health, and to animal welfare - to increasing calls for an animal-free food system. In his book, Reese outlines an evidence-based roadmap to respond to the simple question: How do we actually get from here to there?

Refreshments will be provided.

About the book
Reese tells the stories of activists using data to steer policy and behavior, scientists making clean meat —real meat made from animal cells without animal slaughter, entrepreneurs founding million-dollar food companies (even a billion in one case!), and thoughtful consumers driving demand to help build this animal-free food system. 

The End of Animal Farming calls upon readers to join these change-makers in one of the most important social movements of our time. In broader terms, Reese outlines methods for studying effective social change and the expansion of humanity's moral circle, paving the way for future activists and changemakers to tackle the world's most pressing social problems.
