Public Invited to See Ingrid E Newkirk in First Stop on Tour outside North America
New Delhi – The international founder of all worldwide PETA affiliates, Ingrid E Newkirk, will be in Delhi on 8 November to give a talk titled, The Naked Truth: We Are All Animals. It is part of a motivational global speaking tour that has been a rousing success in the United States. Delhi will be the first city outside North America where the talk will be held. Newkirk has been addressing packed auditoriums talking about life-saving work of PETA affiliates around the world and why animal rights has become one of the most vital issues of our time.
When: 8 November, 7 pm
Where: Russian Centre of Science and Culture, Cinema Hall,
24 Ferozeshah Road, New Delhi 110 001
Newkirk is available today for pre-event telephone interviews. For an in-depth look, media are invited to attend the event.
“We fail to reach some people sometimes, but when we don’t try, we fail to reach everyone”, says Newkirk, who was recently “barbecued” in Mumbai to help people consider the plight of animals used for meat and who, on her last visit to India, pulled a Victoria through the streets to shine a spotlight on the plight of horses who are forced to do just that nearly every day of their lives.
Newkirk is the recipient of numerous awards and the author of 13 books. She was named a top businessperson of the year by Fortune magazine and has been the subject of two television documentaries: the BBC’s Ingrid Newkirk: The Naked Revolutionary and HBO’s award-winning I Am an Animal. Her work to help animals is regularly featured in newspapers around the world, and she has appeared on numerous high-profile shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, 60 Minutes and Voice of America. PETA’s guiding principle is that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or use for entertainment, and Newkirk has made it her mission in life to implement that credo in India, the US and every other country in the world.
The event is free and will be followed by a Q&A session. Light refreshments will be served. As seats are limited, people who want to attend but are not affiliated with the media are requested to RSVP by 7 November at [email protected].
