On this Valentine’s weekend, show your love for our planet as well as your sweetheart, by attending this event to learn about the most pressing issues facing our environment and our future. There will be two FREE screenings of the groundbreaking environmental documentary, Cowspiracy, at 11am and 3:30pm, with a Q&A after each showing with the filmmakers Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn, along with Environmental Activist Demosthenes Martos. Louie Psihoyos, Oscar-Winning Director of The Cove, states that “Cowspiracy may be the most important film made to inspire saving the Planet”.
Starting at 10am and throughout the day there will be national level speakers, and food demos every hour. Featured speakers are Robert Cheeke, a vegan bodybuilder and motivational speaker and author; Joseph Gonzales, RD, LD, a Plant-Based Dietitian; Robin Helfritch, an animal rights and animal rescue activist; as well as other speakers. The day will conclude with an Expert Q&A Panel Discussion at 5pm with all of the day’s speakers. The speakers will also be available throughout the day to meet and greet, as well as to sign books and discuss their work.
The Loft Cinema campus, located at 3233 E Speedway Blvd, will be filled with incredible food vendors so come hungry and enjoy the day. Please bring your friends, family and co-workers. There will be FREE DOOR PRIZES for the first 150 people, ages 15-22 (must show ID).
A Special Announcement From HYN
The last four years at HYN were an amazing and awe-inspiring experience. HYN was successful in bringing some of the best speakers in the world to help educate our Tucson community about the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, and we reached thousands of people with our message. We were so fortunate to have been visited by the founding fathers of this movement and such forward thinking leaders as Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD; T. Colin Campbell, PhD; John McDougall, MD; Neal Barnard, MD; and John Robbins, to name only a few. We loved and appreciated hearing everyone’s success stories and their newfound love for this lifestyle.
