The following note, from Bryan and Carla Wilson, is for all Florida animal advocates. Wish I could be there!
This is a important reminder about the 9th annual Holiday Dinner for the Animals in just 2 1/2 weeks! If you haven't mailed your checks it's not too late but space is filling up quickly!!
Each year animal advocates gather for an evening of delicious Vegan food, camaraderie, some of the best nationally known animal rights speakers, and of course those raffle prizes!! Do not miss out on the event that some call a "holiday tradition" in central Florida. This years speaker is Karen Davis with United Poultry Concerns. Even if you have heard Karen speak in the past, she always brings something new and exciting to the table! Please invite your friends and family to attend. Can you think of a better holiday gift?!
KAREN DAVIS is the President and Founder in 1990 of United Poultry Concerns, a nonprofit organization that promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl. She has a PhD in English from the University of Maryland-College Park where she taught for twelve years in the English Department.
At the University of Maryland Karen founded the Animal Rights Coalition in 1989, and she pioneered a course on the role of animals in the Western philosophic and literary tradition in the University of Maryland Honors Program. Karen is a featured speaker at the annual National Animal Rights and Taking Action for Animals conferences in Washington, DC and Los Angeles. On July 2, 2002, Karen was inducted into the U.S. Animal Rights Hall of Fame for outstanding contributions to animal liberation. Karen is the author of several books some of which will be available for purchase and signing AT the dinner.
