Santa Monica, California: Another Screening Added of “A Prayer for Compassion”

Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets for our Los Angeles film screening last week, we are now able to offer a second screening! Please join us for the Santa Monica premiere of the award-winning new documentary A Prayer for Compassion that promotes compassion for all animals to religious and spiritual audiences. Invite your friends, family, and everyone you know who cares about animals, especially if they identify with religion.

In Defense of Animals joins with Jewish Veg, Vegan Flag, and other organizations to host this film, which follows filmmaker Thomas Jackson on a quest across America, to Morocco for the UN World Climate Conference, and throughout the Indian subcontinent, asking religious leaders to include all of the planet’s inhabitants in a circle of respect, caring, and love.

The first 50 guests to arrive will receive a cruelty-free guest goodie bag, courtesy of VegNews Magazine, Tea Drops Arsayo, Blue District, All Vegan Organic, and Vegan Flag.

The Santa Monica event will begin at 6:00 pm at the lovely All Vegan Organic. From 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, all attendees are encouraged to enjoy a delicious organic vegan meal and drink for a 10% discount courtesy of All Vegan Organic. Dine on the deck as you lose yourself in the aroma of the Jasmine Garden. Make new friends, take selfies, and network while viewing a pop-up art show by activist artist Dina Farris Appel of Vegan Artist Dina.

Join us for the movie introduction, sponsor and co-host appreciation speech from 7:00 pm - 7:10 pm and watch the screening from 7:10 pm - 8:46 pm. After the screening, stay tuned for a Q & A with filmmaker Thomas Wade Jackson, Dr. Sailesh Rao, Susan Hargreaves, our own Lisa Levinson, and others interviewed in the film from 8:50 pm - 9:15 pm.
