    Beagle Freedom Project: Shannon Keith on The Authentic Woman w/ Shannon Fisher

    in Culture

    Shannon Fisher interviews Shannon Keith, President and Founder of the Beagle Freedom Project (BFP). You've seen the viral YouTube videos showing terrified beagles hesitant to come out of crates but ultimately overcoming their fear and frolic in the grass? Those were made by BFP! Shannon Keith's organization fights for animal rights on many levels, from fighting for legislation requiring humane treatment of laboratory animals to physically rescuing beagles used in laboratory testing and helping them assimilate into life outside of the lab - and ultimately finding them loving homes.


    Most beagles used in experiments have never seen grass, the sun, or anything outside the walls of a laboratory. They have received little or no affection & are often afraid of people. Beagle Freedom Project is doing some amazing work in bringing joy & love to these animals. Shannon and her BFP team work tirelessly to rescue animals from cruel circumstances, rehabilitate them, and get them the love and care they deserve.

    Angela Peabody, Female Genital Mutilation, The Authentic Woman w/ Shannon Fisher

    in Women

    This week, Shannon Fisher welcomes Angela Peabody, President and Founder of the Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that was formed to eradicate gender based violence and empower women and girls worldwide through education.


    Female Genital Mutilation is internationally recognized as a violation of the human rights of girls and women. An estimated 230,000 women and girls are at risk for female genital mutilation in the U.S. annually.  Around the world, 8000 girls are victims of FGM daily. Up to 140 million girls and women worldwide are currently living with the consequences of FGM. 


    Female genital mutilation has been illegal in the United States since 1996, and transporting girls out of the U.S. for FGM is now punishable by five years in jail, but the procedure is still performed in private, and it has gone largely underground.
