“I was teaching argumentative writing in my classes, and Erin's presentation offered an effective context to discuss the efficacy of arguments in diverse contexts. It was a great presentation overall.”
- Professor, University of San Francisco
“I am truly disgusted by the practice of factory farming and the impact it has not only on the environment but on the people. I am shocked at how oblivious people are and the need for further education. While I agree that the lack of knowledge stems from the lack of education, it is no excuse and it is our duty to educate ourselves and become better informed consumers. I appreciated the lesson I received today and will work to educate those around me and better myself.”
- College Sophomore, University of San Diego
