Janet Kalish, Freeganism and Food Waste
Janet Kalish is an animal lover, retired Spanish high school teacher, vegan and freegan. She is an active member of the NYC freegan.info group in which she gives trash tours, helps organize film nights and discussions, Really Really Free Markets and DIY events, all with the purpose of educating and encouraging people to be less wasteful and to realize how our current system is abusing our planet and its inhabitants. By sharing, repurposing, salvaging and reusing, by living with a heightened sensitivity to the barrage of advertising and a will to resist it, we may stave off the horrifying trends that are dramatically altering our world.

Hope Bohanec and Justin Van Kleeck, Humane Hoax Online Summit
As we successfully expose the animal agriculture industry for its cruelty and environmental impact, the clever industry marketers keep reacting with more “humane” labels, more small-scale tall tales, and more feel-good falsehoods. It has never been more important to educate on the truth behind the industry lies. Bringing together a knowledgeable panel of experts on this issue, we hope to expose animal agriculture’s humane-washing with fresh insight into the humane hoax. Please join us in January for this exciting free event!
