A persuasive speaker who has been invited to address conventions all over the world, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk gives two keynote addresses in this expanded set that will inspire compassionate people everywhere to speak up for what they believe in and become more active every day in simple ways.

In her keynote address at an animal rights conference, you'll hear what's really in a hot dog and all about the veal-milk connection, learn who America's real terrorists are, and find out why it is more important than ever before to extend our compassion to "the least of them."

In an address to young people in Washington, Newkirk uses dramatic analogies to illustrate how putting yourself in animals' shoes can give you a different perspective on the urgency of their plight and show you just how easy it is to help them. She speaks movingly of animals' talents and skills, of their innate intelligence, and of the natural world that they have inhabited for eons but which is now being altered forever by human enterprises that do not respect animals' homes, families, and lives.

In both addresses, although you'll hear of the enormity of animal suffering, Newkirk also imparts her inspiring belief that "the miracle is you" in the form of kind acts chosen and unkind acts rejected in your daily life. Her ability to mix wry humor, wit, and poignant descriptions of animals' plights can move even the hardest of hearts, so plan to listen with family and friends and you could change them forever. Then, pass it on!
