As 2019 comes to an end, we’re looking back at our biggest legal victories for animals over the last year and looking ahead at what’s to come in 2020. Join Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, as he shares stories behind this year’s biggest victories. In 2019 the Animal Legal Defense Fund set precedents to help captive animals using the Endangered Species Act, played an important role in passing new laws that will help protect animals in the future and took on factory farming’s egregious abuses and practices, just to name a few! A brief Q&A will follow.
