Join the Environmental Law Society, Animal Law Society, and Food Law and Policy Society for a lunch talk about animal rights, human rights, and the future of the planet.

Carter Dillard, Director of Litigation with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and Stephanie Feldstein, Population and Sustainability Director with the Center for Biological Diversity, will discuss the vital connections between animal agriculture, human population growth, environmental protection, and systems of rights – both human and animal. They will explain how to use this synergy – along with advocacy, creativity, and legal action – to get beyond the stigma and taboo that usually keep population growth and our diets out of conversations and they will suggest legal reforms and practical ways for each of us to create a better future for all species

    “Those who fail to see that population growth and climate change are two sides of the same coin are either ignorant or hiding from the truth. These two huge environmental problems are inseparable and to discuss one while ignoring the other is irrational. James Lovelock, scientist and environmentalist, born 1919”
