The co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, a national nonprofit that advocates for animal welfare, will be in Austin Wednesday for a free talk at the University of Texas.
Gene Baur, author of the new book Living the Farm Sanctuary Life, will speak from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at The University of Texas School of Law, 727 E. Dean Keeton.
It’s been 30 years since Baur co-founded the nonprofit, which has more than 250,000 members. TIME magazine has called Baur "the conscience of the food movement," and he is recognized as one of the most influential activists of the 21st century for his work to end cruelty to farm animals and change the way society views them.
The event is being hosted by Student Animal Legal Defense Fund at the University of Texas School of Law.
