Ben Rankin Treasurer

Born and raised in the Ozarks of Southwest Missouri, Ben is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he majored in Political Science. After working for a year in litigation as a paralegal, Ben decided to attend law school to fight for environmental justice and rights for both humans and animals. While not tending to his indoor garden, brushing up on chess openings, or cooking, Ben serves on the boards of the Animal Law Society and Lambda and volunteers with the Prison Legal Assistance Project. He will be advocating against animal agriculture this summer as an intern at Farm Sanctuary.
