One thought on “Easy Veggie Burgers

  1. Dr. Joanne Kong

    Greetings to members of MSveg!
    I am a University of Richmond professor and animal advocate with an educational Powerpoint lecture–presentation: FOOD FOR THOUGHT: HOW A GREENER DIET CAN TRANSFORM YOU AND THE PLANET, which discusses the connection between Animal Agriculture and Climate Change-Environment, Public Health, and the moral and ethical issues of the enormous suffering of CAFO animals. The presentation is about 40 minutes long, and includes imagery and video excerpts used with the permission of Mercy for Animals and Farm Sanctuary. I will have my laptop computer with me.
    As I will be in Jackson on Saturday, October 3rd, I would like to inquire if there might be the opportunity to give the presentation to interested members of your organization. I would ask no fee (but if ground transportation could be provided, that would certainly be appreciated:). My hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn, 235 West Capitol Street in downtown Jackson.
    I would be glad to send you excerpts of the content, and an outline as well. I gave the presentation in California and Colorado this past Summer, and some endorsements include:
    “It was an honor to hear your lecture.” Ann Swissdorf, Board of Directors, VegFest Colorado and
    Founder, Animal Action Network (CO)
    “Dr. Kong’s presentation really helped clarify the importance of keeping to the Vegan lifestyle, and
    strengthened my motivation to do so.” Diane Byington
    “This is a presentation that anyone who cares about the earth and living compassionately needs to see. Dr. Kong brings the point across most clearly, that we need to become more aware of our connection to the planet and other living things.” Dr. Paul Hanson
    Thank you so much, and I look forward to hearing from you!
