Speak Out for Farmed Animals Week

How can legal professionals get involved?

Speak Out for Farmed Animals is a yearly event dedicated to raising public awareness nationwide about the lack of meaningful laws that protect farmed animals from cruel treatment. Join the Animal Legal Defense Fund every October to take action for farmed animals.

Here are a few simple ideas on how legal professionals can get involved:

  • Organize an Animal Legal Defense Fund Benefit Day by contacting a local vegan/vegetarian restaurant or animal-friendly business to see if they would donate a percentage of their total daily sales to the Animal Legal Defense Fund to help us in our groundbreaking legal work for animals.
  • Implement Meatless Mondays in your office or at home. Helping other people choose more plant-based options spares the lives of farmed animals.
  • Own a business in a state that has an Ag-Gag law? Help your customers become informed and hand out our brochures and stickers. Use the hashtag #(companyname)againstAgGag on social media to spread the word online too.
  • Thinking of traveling to a state with an Ag-Gag law for vacation or work? Try to avoid it if you can and let them know that you don’t want to spend money in their state because animal protection, transparency, food safety, workers’ rights, and the environment is important to you.
