Speaker:  Lenore Braford, Piedmont Animal Refuge
Lenore Braford is the founder, volunteer interim Executive Director, and volunteer Shelter Manager at the Refuge. Her drive to advocate for populations in need began in middle school when she began working with children with disabilities. That work continues today, but her circle of compassion was widened to include farm animals when she began to question how our society views and treats them during her studies at Oberlin College. Since that time she has been steadily working to advocate for farm animals while educating the general public about the truths behind their treatment and their worth as individuals. Lenore has been vegan since 2007 and enjoys playing music, being outdoors and spending time with her cat Sipsie. 

Before the guest speaker, Sally Binkowski, the President of Peer Learning, will provide a brief overview of the Fall 2019 courses.

The Meet & Greet is free and open to the public.  Hope to see you there.
