Description

Fresh from presentations at Harvard, Columbia, and Cornell universities, Hanh Nguyen will bring her thought-provoking talk, “How Bigotry Begins”—to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas as part of a national tour courtesy of peta2 and the UNLV VEG Club.

Nguyen’s talk has sparked lively campus discussions this year, opening up not just questions and comments but prompting new theories and the retelling of students’ personal experiences. The theme is the systematic "othering" of and discrimination against different groups of human beings as well as members of different animal species and why we should consider nonhuman animals in the fight for social justice.

Free vegan food from Pizza Company will be provided to all attendees.
