Animal Rights, Human Rights, & the Future of the Planet by the Animal Legal Defense Fund & the Center for Biological Diversity
February 26, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
New York University School of Law
40 Washington Square South, Smart Classroom 216, Vanderbilt Hall
The Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) and the Center for Biological Diversity are teaming up for a speaking tour: Breaking the Taboo: Leading Animal and Environmental Groups to Discuss Population, Human, and Animal Rights.
ALDF & the Center are teaming up to bring the conversation about population, overconsumption, environmental protection, and animal rights to top-ranked law schools across the country.
Carter Dillard, director of litigation at ALDF, and Stephanie Feldstein, population and sustainability director at the Center, will discuss the intersection of the most pressing issues in the animal and environmental protection movements and how crises can – and must – be solved through innovative policies that advance human rights, animal rights, and wildlife conservation at the same time.
Carter and Stephanie will discuss the vital connections between animal agriculture, human population growth, environmental protection, and systems of rights – both human and animal. They will explain how to use this synergy – along with advocacy, creativity, and legal action – to get beyond the stigma and taboo that usually keep population growth and our diets out of conversations. They will also suggest legal reforms and practical ways for each of us to create a better future for all species.
