2018 Debrief: Recent Victories! Plus Visions for 2019
As 2019 approaches, we’re looking back at our biggest legal victories for animals over the past 12 months. In response to our lawsuits, courts struck down key provisions of unconstitutional Ag-Gag laws in Utah and Idaho. We filed a groundbreaking lawsuit arguing that animals have the right to sue their abusers in court. And we continued to fight the removal of tens of thousands of animal welfare records from the U.S. Department of Agriculture online database. These are just a few highlights!
Join Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, as he shares stories behind this year’s biggest victories. Mr. Wells will also give a glimpse into what is planned for 2019. A brief Q&A will follow.
