Event Description

A Prayer for Compassion questions the relationship between the world’s religions and their embrace of all living beings

Award winning director Thomas Jackson and producer,
author and educator Victoria Moran made he feature
length film, which was recently selected by a plant based publication as one of the 21 Must Watch Vegan Documentaries that will inspire people to change the world in 2019, strives to motivate and encourage those already on a religious or spiritual path to expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, regardless of species, and make choices in alignment with this value.

Actress Evanna Lynch, Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter
films, said of the movie, “I was very moved by the many voices that make up this powerful documentary and by the unwavering conviction with which so many spiritual leaders spoke of the imperativeness to act now, align our actions with our spiritual values and take moral responsibility for humanity’s treatment of animals.”

The film follows Thomas on a quest across America, to Morocco for the UN World Climate Conference, and throughout the Indian subcontinent, asking the questions, “Can compassion grow to include all beings and how will people of faith respond to the call to include all of the planet’s inhabitants in a circle of respect, caring and love?”

Join us on September 12th at 6pm for the Portland screening!
