False Advertising: How to Protect Animals by Litigating for Consumers 2019
When companies try to trick conscientious consumers into buying animal products, companion animals, or tickets to animal performances with the false promise that these products or services are humane or cruelty-free, legal advocates have a variety of tools at their disposal to stop this “humane-washing.”
Kelsey Eberly, staff attorney at the Animal Legal Defense Fund, will explain these tools to attendees and show how advocates can take away the market share for cruel products and services, protecting animals by holding companies accountable for their misrepresentations to consumers.
