Learn about Grilled: Turning Adversaries to Allies to Change the Chicken Industry at the AJC Decatur Book Festival on Sun., Sep. 1.
Sunday September 1, 2019 01:00 pm EDT
Cost: Free
Leah Garcés has committed her career to fighting for the rights of factory-farmed animals. As president of the nonprofit group Mercy for Animals and former U.S. executive director of Compassion in World Farming, she has led the fight against the sprawling chicken industry that raises tens of thousands of birds inside tiny cages in cruel conditions—all to satisfy the American appetite for meat. Grilled: Turning Adversaries to Allies to Change the Chicken Industry is her story of working alongside the farming industry for animal welfare and ethical food. Instead of fighting and protesting and shaming—approaches that simply haven’t worked previously—Garcés has instead gotten to know the producers. This is the story of what happens when we cross enemy lines to look for solutions. It’s a story of the power of human connection, and what happens when we practice empathy toward our enemies.
