THE AGONIST Frontwoman To Speak At ‘The PETA2 Experience’ Event In Chicago

Alissa White-Gluz, the powerful voice of the Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based metal band THE AGONIST, will speak at “The peta2 Experience”event this coming Saturday, April 21 at DePaul University, Schmitt Academic Center, in Chicago, Illinois.

Alissa recently snagged a Libby Award in the category of “Breakthrough Artist” from peta2, PETA‘s youth division. The sixth annual Libby Awards (“Libby” is for “liberation”) honor animal-friendly people and products.

White-Gluz took a stand against the universally condemned annual seal slaughter in her native Canada by shooting a striking peta2 ad that shows her above a photo of a baby seal who is about to be clubbed and reads, “Bang Your Own Head, Not a Seal’s.” She has also spoken out against the fur industry, and she encourages everyone to buy only cruelty-free personal-care products.
