Student Animal Legal Defense Fund News
The Student Animal Legal Defense Fund would like to congratulate Mimi and Mason for being the most spirited pets! We would also like to thank Jane and President James Ramsey for submitting a photo of these very spirited dogs! Congratulations!
Please join the Brandeis Student Animal Legal Defense Fund for Dinner and a Movie at the Red Barn, September 10th.
Eleni Vlachos will be screening her documentary "Seeing Through The Fence." Through a series of humorous and poignant interviews conducted across the US and in Greece with 'random people,' the documentarian's family, and activists, "Seeing Through the Fence" explores the role of food in modern society and our connection, or lack of connection, with both the processes and animals from which our food originates. A question and answer session with the filmmaker will follow the film. A vegan pasta dinner complete with garlic bread, drink and dessert will be served while food lasts.
Dinner: 5pm - $5
Movie: 6pm - FREE
The Student Animal Legal Defense Fund is planning an upcoming fundraiser. We will donate proceeds to Kentucky animal welfare organizations. If you resemble your pet, you are the perfect participant. Beginning tomorrow, we will accept pictures of law students, professors, and staff with their animal companions. Each entry is only $1! In just a few weeks, we will display these pictures and allow people to indicate which person most closely resembles his or her animal companion by dropping spare change into jars. The winner will receive a Feeder's Supply Gift Card and various other animal related prizes. All participants will get the satisfaction of knowing they helped their animal friends by raising funds for animals.
To enter please place your $1 donation, picture, and name and contact number in an envelope. Please place the envelope in Brittany Ducker's mailbox. All submissions must be received by Friday, October 12th.
During the fundraiser, SALDF members will also be available to give you updates on the current state of animal law in the US and current initiatives in which the SALDF has become involved. Unfortunately, KY ranks #50 in animal protection laws among US states. We have the worst laws in America. This is extremely embarassing and has to change. Please participate in this fundraiser, and keep your ears open. The SALDF is committed to informing our law school community about chances to help animals.
