About This Session: Partnership Not Servitude: Prioritizing All Humans and the Direct Effect it Has on Pets
James Evans and Marilou Chanrasmi from Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity will discuss the origins of animal welfare and how we got here with the problems that persist today. Together, we will look at the need to include people of color as part of the solution, including how it has historically been done and new ways to partner with communities who may distrust us. The topics discussed in this talk will consist of the history of animal welfare, prioritizing BIPOC people, and the value of this very inclusion to help save more lives.
