Gene Baur speaks at Lancaster Farm Sanctuary

  • Lancaster Farm Sanctuary 558 Milton Grove Road South Elizabethtown, PA, 17022 United States (map)

Join us at Lancaster Farm Sanctuary on August 8th when we host a discussion with Gene Baur, president and cofounder of Farm Sanctuary and the author of two national bestselling books.

 

For more than 30 years, Gene has worked to prevent the abuses of factory farming and advocated for a sustainable plant based food system. Vegan since 1985, Time Magazine has called him “the conscience of the food movement” and Oprah Winfrey named him as one of her SuperSoul 100 Givers.

 

Gene’s activism has deep roots in Lancaster, PA where he spent years campaigning to stop animal cruelty at Lancaster Stockyards. In 1986 he rescued a sheep who was discarded on a pile of dead animals behind the stockyard. She recovered and lived at Farm Sanctuary for more than ten years, and her rescue helped to spawn a global farm sanctuary movement that encompasses hundreds of sanctuaries across the U.S. and around the world.

**THIS IS A TICKETED EVENT AND TICKETS ARE LIMITED. TICKETS ARE $10. PLEASE PURCHASE TICKETS HERE. If you can not afford the ticket cost please email us and we will make every effort to accommodate.

 

Gene will be returning to Lancaster to celebrate Lancaster Farm Sanctuary, and to speak about the growth and evolution of the animal protection movement along with the growing community and converging interests pushing for reforms to our broken food system.
