A half-day session of the Animal Grantmakers Conference at Harvard Law School, hosted by the Animal Law & Policy Program, focused on “Global Farmed Animal Issues”
In October 2018, we hosted a half-day session of the Animal Grantmakers Conference at Harvard Law School. The topic of the session was “Global Farmed Animal Issues” and included the following presentations which can be viewed by clicking on the titles:
- “Halal Animals” – Professor Kristen Stilt, Harvard Animal Law & Policy Program
- “Climate Change & Animals” – Jonathan Lovvorn, Humane Society of the United States
- “Reducing Farm Animal Suffering Globally”– Chetana Mirle, Spring Point Partners
Chris Green additionally served on the organizing committee for the Animal Grantmakers Conference, which was held in Boston for the first time in several years.
The session at Harvard Law School was open to the Harvard community and attended by many of our students. Tim Midura, the Executive Director of the Brooks Institute for Animal Rights Law and Policy, also attended the event, providing the opportunity to formally announce his recent gift to help launch our Animal Law & Policy Clinic.
We then were able to take several of the Animal Grantmakers members on a tour of our new building that was in the final stages of construction.
