The event, in honor of Veganuary, will be on Sunday, January 22nd from 6 pm to 8 pm Central Time. You don’t have to stay the entire time. It is very flexible so people can come late or leave early if needed.
The meeting is to talk about the documentary, The End of Medicine. This documentary explores the correlation between the treatment of animals and emerging health threats. You can watch it for free HERE.
The way this works is that everyone watches the film on their own prior to the event, then they meet on zoom to discuss. They break everyone out into randomized small groups of around 4 or 5 people, give them a discussion prompt, and give them about 20 minutes or so to discuss in their randomized groups.
They will do multiple rounds of small group discussion with different groups and different prompts. This gives everyone an opportunity to meet new people and hear a variety of voices and perspectives throughout the night. Dr. Aysha Akhtar, who is shown in the film, will be joining in for a special guest Q&A at the end!
The zoom info will be available once you RSVP on the Eventbrite page.
