An Evening with the Animal Legal Defense Fund – New York City
On Thursday, May 31, the Animal Legal Defense Fund hosted “An Evening with the Animal Legal Defense Fund” in New York City. Guests learned about our recent victories and plans for the upcoming year. Animal advocates mingled with key staff members including Executive Director Stephen Wells and Joyce Tischler, founder and general counsel of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. The event also included Animal Legal Defense Fund board members Sarah Luick (board chair), Andrea Arden, Morgan Mulford, and Elizabeth Hess.
Attendees viewed a short video about the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s mission to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system. Additionally, Executive Director Stephen Wells presented an award to Nicoletta J. Caferri, Chief of the Animal Cruelty Prosecutions Unit in the Queens County District Attorney’s Office in New York City, for her outstanding work on behalf of animals.
The sold-out event, held at the 287 Gallery in the heart of Chelsea, featured a few famous canines who stole the show and kept guests focused on the reason we hold these events in the first place – for the animals.
