2:00 PM at Asheville Friends Meeting House
227 Edgewood Road, Asheville, NC
Presented by Rowdy Keelor
In this thought-provoking talk, we challenge ourselves to consider different perspectives on the choices and ethics concerning the food we eat. How do we confront the moral dilemma in ourselves and/or others with different views?
We will take an honest look at our treatment and use of animals that have traditionally been considered “food”. Is it necessary to eat them? Is there a more ethical way to do so? Are there other moral impacts in the consumption of animal products?
Also as a part of this presentation we will explore the idea of communicating with those whom we fundamentally disagree. How do we do it? In our divided America being able to talk openly and authentically with people on opposite sides of an issue is crucial.

Informal discussion and refreshments will follow the presentation. All are welcome!
