For anyone in the Washington D.C. area, come check out this event hosted by Humane Society International's Factory Farming Campaign at the DC Public Library (Chevy Chase Branch, 5652 Connecticut Ave. NW) on Saturday, June 13, from 3 to 5pm.
The event will be about "ahimsa" (non-violence) as it applies to our diet and lifestyle. Homeopathic physician Dr. Nandita Shah will be speaking on the health benefits of a vegetarian diet. Nandita does vegan outreach workshops all around the world.
