CHANGE OF HEART
A free presentation and discussion on activism and what really works!
SUNDAY, JULY 31
At the Space Lounge (in Saturn Cafe)
2175 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA.
Please join IDA in welcoming Nick Cooney to the Bay Area. Nick's cutting edge book, Change of Heart, is a must read for all activists, armchair to professional! Nick will be discussing what scientific psychology research can teach activists for animals, the earth, and any social movement about how to effectively persuade the public to adopt compassionate behaviors.
YOU WILL LEARN:
-How to become a more effective advocate
-Why we often misunderstand what really motivates people when it comes to making compassionate choices
-What is motivating our advocacy choices, and is it helping or hurting our efforts?
-How to measure our effectiveness and do the most good possible!
Vegan Appetizers and Cupcakes!
