Don’t miss Cowspiracy, reception and movie, free!

ON TUESDAY APRIL 30, from 7-9:30 pm, Doc Your World is hosting its own special
Cinema Slapdown. If you haven’t attended a Slapdown yet, basically, a well-known
though controversial film is screened. In this case, “Cowspiracy,” a documentary
following filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing
the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations
are too afraid to talk about it. Following the screening, two debaters, one who loves it
and the other who doesn’t, will debate against each other and the audience which will be
moderated by Referee Michael Caplan.

For this Slapdown, the discussion will focus on our role and responsibilities as
consumers and how that affects the planet. Come and see Harrison Cothran who
supports a pro meat lifestyle vs Bianca Doman who supports not eating animal

Beforehand, there will be a reception with food and drinks available for the
public as well as a sale hosted by the Human Rights course at Columbia where profits will
be donated to RefugeeOne, an organization that resettles hundreds of refugees fleeing
war, persecution, violence, and genocide from around the world. You won’t want to miss
it. Come for the screening – stay for the fight – fun and free!
