PETA President Ingrid Newkirk To Speak At Penn State April 2

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk will speak at Penn State in an open lecture and Q&A called “Animal Rights: Human Obligations” at 7 p.m. on April 2 in 112 Walker Building.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is known for its aggressive tactics in defense of animals, employing shocking images and racy advertising campaigns to spread its message. Its Twitter account often pulls no punches, either. Its slogan is “animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment or abuse in any way.”

Newkirk, 64, co-founded PETA in 1980. She is otherwise noted for her involvement in the Silver Spring Monkeys case.

The event is free and open to everyone. It will be hosted by the Penn State Vegetarian Club.
