New Paltz, NY: Free Forum for Farm Animals

Tuesday, September 30, 2014
6 to 8:30 p.m.
SUNY New Paltz Lecture Center Room 100 (LC100)
121 Sojourner Way
New Paltz, NY 12561

The Humane Society of the United States and the SUNY New Paltz Environmental Task Force invite you to join us at the SUNY New Paltz campus for an important free discussion about how factory farming harms animals and the environment, and how New Yorkers can work together to combat the problem.

Pollution from factory-style animal farms causes significant damage to New York’s rivers, lakes and airways. In addition, undercover investigations have unveiled shocking animal cruelty at these facilities in New York and other states. While many concerned citizens are taking the important step of reducing their consumption of meat, eggs and dairy, we can also work together on the local and state level to enact meaningful policies to protect animals and our planet.

The panel will feature:
  • Matt Dominguez, HSUS Manager of Public Policy for Farm Animal Protection
• Brian Shapiro, HSUS New York state director
             • Elizabeth Moran of Environmental Advocates of New York
             • Lobbyist Jennifer Carlson of Abraham Crown & Associates
             • Michael Boms, Biology Department, SUNY New Paltz

Refreshments will be served. Please invite your friends and family to join us at this free event!

Contact Brian Shapiro at bshapiro@humanesociety.org if you have additional questions.
