Nick Cooney Live Chat this Weekend

Nick Cooney is the author of “Change of Heart: What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change” and is also the founder and Director of The Humane League, a 501(c)3 animal advocacy organization that works to protect all animals through public education, campaigns and rescue.

Nick became vegetarian, and soon after, vegan, at the age of 18 while on his college orientation, a friend told him of a paper she had written about animal experimentation. Having never considered the issue before, and went immediately to his local library, checking out the only two books they had on animal protection. He thought it was clear that the right thing to do was become vegetarian, soon after meeting vegans for the first time and deciding to become vegan himself.

Nick has written for publications including The Philadelphia Inquirer and Z Magazine, and his advocacy work has been featured in hundreds of media outlets includingTime magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and National Public Radio. He holds a degree in Non-Violence Studies from Hofstra University and formerly worked conducting nutrition education programs with the University of Pennsylvania's Urban Nutrition Initiative.

Nick welcomes the opportunity to engage ARZone members this weekend on a range of topics, including his very popular book, Change of Heart: What Psychology Can Teach Us About Spreading Social Change, his work with The Humane League and his philosophies in general.

ARZone is supportive of education, critical thinking, rational discourse, and aims to provoke intelligent dialogue about issues that most concern members of the animal advocacy movement.
