voiceless-memeI’m about to leave for Australia on a month-long speaking tour.

A huge part of my work the last couple of years has been raising awareness about “ag-gag” laws, which make it illegal to take photographs or video of animal cruelty on factory farms and slaughterhouses.

Now, this legislation is spreading internationally.

In Australia, the agriculture industry is pointing to the United States, and saying “we want the ag-gag laws that they have.”

This lecture tour is organized to stop that, and prevent this dangerous legislation from spreading. It’s being organized by Voiceless, and I was invited to be the keynote speaker for the 2014 Animal Law Lecture Series.

It’s an incredible opportunity to stop this trend, now, before it takes root in another country. I’ll be sure to keep you all posted from the road!

And if you are in Australia, or know anyone who would be interested, it’s free to register. You can find your nearest location here: www.voiceless.org.au/lecture
