The NLG has an Animal Rights Activism Committee!

I was thrilled to learn recently that the National Lawyers Guild now has an Animal Rights Activism Committee, working both directly for other animals and in support of human animal rights activists:
The Animal Rights Activism Committee works to end oppression and exploitation of non-human animals. The committee engages Guild members to advocate for changes in the law to recognize the rights of non-human animals, and to provide legal support and resources to animal rights activists. It works in coalition with other groups to fight--in the courts and in the streets--to liberate non-human animals.
And they’ve been active! This is wonderful news, and another sign of the growing moral and legal recognition of the rights of other animals.
