November 24 — Cowspiracy: The Sustanibility Secret
Adelphi Friends Meeting (Adelphi, MD)

Teen-age environmentalist Greta Thunberg challenges us to "Go vegan!" Can you agree with her views about climate change and still eat meat? Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking 90-minute environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker 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. 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 the personal actions we can each take to mitigate it. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Working Group on Right Relationship with Animals. RSVP here. "Humanity is now standing at a crossroads. We must now decide which path we want to take. How do we want the future living conditions for all living species to be like?" ~ Greta Thunberg
