For more than 25 years, Gene Baur has traveled extensively campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized farming and our cheap food system. His achievements include helping pass the first U.S. laws to protect animals on farms, winning the first-ever cruelty conviction at a U.S. stockyard, and opening the country's first shelters for abused and neglected farm animals. His work to champion farm animal protection has garnered the support of celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Alec Baldwin, Martha Stewart, and Ryan Gosling, and made headlines around the world, including numerous stories in The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Washington Post, and USA Today. He has appeared on countless television and radio programs, including NBC, CBS, ABC, "The Larry King Show," "The Martha Stewart Show," and various programs on CNN and the Fox News Channel.

Baur will be speaking during a free seminar at 7:30 p.m. Monday, in Bemis Hall of Colorado College at 920 North Cascade Ave.
