Tom Holder of Speaking of Research (SR), will give presentations, participate in debates and/or meet with student groups over the course of the Monday 20th October to the Tuesday 4th November 2008. The first week (20th-25th) is likely to be spent in or around the state of California, where the issue of animal research remains a hot topic in light of recent attacks on universities within the UC (University of California) system.
It is time students, even those not directly involved in research, weighed in on this important issue. We invite student groups to bring SR to your university to speak (in whatever format of your choosing). The talks will cover Holder’s experiences with animal rights extremism in the UK, why animal research is crucial to the future of medicine, and what we could and should be doing to defend it. This opportunity is not exclusive to student groups to organise, but also toward professors and other faculty wishing to play their part in engaging the campus community on the issue.
To invite Tom to speak at your institution, or to enquire further about ways of going about this, contact us through the request a speaker page.
More details on the tour to be released.
