Last October, Mariann and I had the honor of speaking at the Lewis & Clark Animal Law Conference in Portland, OR. In case you missed it, we even devoted an entire podcast episode to the conference (episode 93 — which you can listen to on our blog or through iTunes — and by the way, it’s one of favorite and most comprehensive episodes). Our talk, “Enough Already! Do Something for Animals!” allowed participants to very specifically zero in on what their unique talents and skills were, and create a game plan for how to plug that into changing the world for animals. The description of the workshop stated that, by attending, you can learn “how each and every one of us can make a significant difference for the animals by unleashing our creativity, being doggedly persistent, and following our dreams to create a better world for animals.”
Now, you can view the entire workshop for free on the Lewis & Clark website (just fyi — viewing it requires that your computer be up to date with Silverlight). It’s a good workshop to even have on in the background as you do house chores or the likes. In other words, you only really need to hear it.
Even more exciting for us (since we did, in fact, already attend our own workshop) is that the vast majority of the workshops presented throughout the weekend are now up on the Lewis & Clark site. We are pretty stoked to catch up on some of the ones we missed, and revisit the workshops we already attended. Some highlights include “Drawing Connections Between Animal Law and Other Disciplines” by Taimie Bryant and Maneesha Deckha, “Developing New Legal Theories to Help Animals: Benefits and Limitations” by Kathy Hessler and Matthew Liebman, and “Where Did Your Food Really Come From? A Guide to Food Labeling,” by Carter Dillard and Will Fantle.
