KEYNOTE Plenary Panel

The Intersectional

Future of Animal Law

Social movements rarely operate in isolation, but have much to gain from their intersecting insights, challenges, and experiences. As the Canadian animal law movement contemplates its past and considers its future, attendees are invited to reflect on the intersections between animal law and other equality-seeking social movements—including those that advocate for gender equality, racial equality, Indigenous rights, and disability justice.
