Discussion article for the meetup : Drinks & Discussion on Animal Welfare as an Effective Cause
31 May 2015 04:00:00PM (-0500)
WHERE: 3136 Patty Lane, Middleton, WI 53562
How do we compare human welfare with non-human animal welfare? Should we care about the suffering of animals in the wild? How cost effective is it to save animal lives? How many animals are suffering in factory farms, shelters, labs, circuses, etc.?
Let's discuss animal welfare issues, arguments put forward by philosophers such as Peter Singer, speciesism, and how this cause compares to other high-impact causes such as global poverty and existential risk.
Snacks & drinks will be provided! Feel free to bring whatever you'd like as well. (To reduce cognitive dissonance, please bring only vegan items.)
