Announcing This Year’s Film…and More!

After many months of careful researching and screening, we are very excited to announce the documentary film for this year’s Vegan Night Out in Harrisonburg:

Turlock – The Documentary

This powerful film documents the rescue of over 4,000 chickens from abandonment, starvation, and intense suffering after the owners of a large-scale egg farm ran out of money…and left 50,000 hens to their fates.

Hear the stories of the rescue, and the individual hens who made it through their ordeal, from the staff of Animal Place, a non-profit farmed animal sanctuary in California. The film, directed by Keegan Kuhn, lays out the many terrible consequences of using animals for food, and makes the case for going vegan to avoid complicity in a system of abuse and exploitation.

Turlock – The Documentary will follow an inspiring talk by Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan of Our Hen House on how to get started with veganism…and stick with it!

We are also excited to announce even more awesome door prizes and product samples!!! Thanks to the following companies for donating to the smorgasbord of fun that will be available at Vegan Night Out:

  • The Vegg: 100% vegan egg yolk replacement; 10% of profits go to support Compassion Over Killing
  • Field Roast Grain Meat: delicious vegan sausages and frankfurters
  • Da Capo Press: publishers of a variety of books about veganism, they have donated a copy of Vegan for Her by Virginia Messina and JL Fields.

Thanks again to all of our wonderful sponsors! And remember–you can still support Vegan Night Out!

About Justin Van Kleeck

I am a vegan (since 1999), a curious skeptic, a bookworm, a nature lover, and your garden-variety neurotic. My wrestling with chaos manifests as writing and, with my wife, tending our friends the plants and spending quality time with our rescued furry kids. I am fun at parties (because I am never there) and so unique that I am easy to forget. So take that, modernity.
