“The question is not, 'Can they reason?' nor, 'Can they talk?' but 'Can they suffer?'” ― Jeremy Bentham, The Principles of Morals and Legislation
"Straight from the Hog's Mouth" is our way of giving a voice to the animals who cannot speak for themselves. Please join us for a FREE evening of spoken word, musical performances, and stories in an open mic format, drawing from themes of animal rights, environmental advocacy, and social justice.
The VVUA is a diverse group made up of individuals from all backgrounds and areas of study, and we encourage the community to participate through creative expression in whatever format you are comfortable with. There will be poets, musicians, storytellers, academics, and even stand-up comics - whatever your medium, we would be delighted to showcase your voice and talent.
