The founder of the U.S.-based Mercy for Animals will speak at Brock next week.

Nathan Rundle will give a free public talk in the Sankey Chamber at Brock from 12 noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11. The presentation, titled “Inspiring Compassion: Putting Our Ethics on the Table,” will focus on how industrial farming has changed the way cows, pigs and chickens are treated and how our food choices can become a powerful tool in preventing cruelty to animals.

Mercy for Animals is a farm animal protection group that conducts undercover investigations and education. It has 75,000 members and a growing list of celebrity supporters, including Ellen DeGeneres.

Rundle’s talk is sponsored by the Department of Sociology.
