Jenny Brown: "The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight for Farm Animals"

A former television producer explains how she became a vegan animal rights activist and co-founder of a farm animal sanctuary.

When bone cancer forced the amputation of Jenny Brown’s leg at age 10, she learned firsthand the suffering of living as a victim of forces beyond her control. Now, as an author, activist and founder of the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, she works daily to protect domesticated animals who also have no choice in their fate. She joins Diane to talk about her passionate fight for farm animals and her new memoir, “The Lucky Ones.”
