Animal Ethics DefaultVeg Meeting Series at Liberty University (Utilizing the Course Material from CreatureKind)
Through videos, short readings, and lots of dialogue, the CreatureKind Course encourages Christians to consider what they believe about animals and how they might move toward living out those beliefs as members of the body of Christ. It also encourages a DefaultVeg lifestyle. DefaultVeg makes plant-based food the default, and encourages Christians to make the choice at every meal to help animals, the environment, and other people (including farm and meatpacking plant workers all over the world). DefaultVeg helps Christian communities turn their commitments to creation care, farmed animal welfare, justice, and stewardship into eating practices that mean good news for everyone. Every plant-based meal has benefits for farmers, farm and slaughterhouse workers, the global majority, animals, and the environment.

- The first measure of success will be getting people to register for the course. My goal is to get 5-10 students to register.
- The second measure of success will be tracking whether the course impacts people's eating habits/ethics/lifestyle. This will be tracked using a survey administered at the beginning and end of the course.
