In Episode 70 of the Paw & Order podcast, Camille Labchuk and Jessica Scott-Reid speak with Kimberly Carroll, Animal Justice’s Communications Strategist and on the Board of Directors. Kimberly announces an exciting new initiative: The Animal Justice Academy!
The Animal Justice Academy is a six-week advocacy bootcamp featuring over 80 presenters who are leaders in the animal rights movement. Together, they guide participants how to create real change for animals through political engagement, media, public protest and outreach, veganism, creative mediums, business, and using your own unique communities and social circles.
The Animal Justice Academy runs January 25-March 5, 2021. Enroll here for FREE at animaljusticeacademy.com.
In the news, Camille and Jessica discuss a New York Times article about dairy industry cruelty, with a disappointing, pro-industry focus, a touching piece in the Globe and Mail about the retired horses from Montreal’s now illegal caleche industry, and an article from the Guardian pointing to the (pretty obvious) fact that organic meat is just as bad for the environment.
The Hero in this episode is Jane Goodall, for urging Edmonton to send lonely Lucy the Elephant, who languishes in solitary confinement at the Edmonton Zoo, to a Tennessee sanctuary where she can live with other elephants.
The Zero is the troublemakers in Rome who broke the law and set off fireworks that scared hundreds of tiny starlings to death.
