The Future Of The Animal Rights Movement

In the past 40 years I have witnessed the leadership of the Animal Rights movement turn gray. Most animal organizations are run by people in their 50s and 60s. Most of us who were involved in the movement’s infancy were too busy rescuing and organizing to grasp the fact that Animal Rights is a philosophical…

Animal Liberation And Social Justice
