Hosted by Debbie Dahmer
Guest will be: Jennifer Skiff- Director of International Programs for Animal Wellness Action & Center for a Humane Economy
TOPIC will be: Kangaroos Are Not Shoes Campaign
More than two million kangaroos are shot each year in Australia. It’s the largest land-based commercial wildlife slaughter in the world, ten times larger and far bloodier than the notorious seal slaughter in Canada.
Secure corporate pledges from Nike and other athletic shoe companies to stop sourcing kangaroo parts in their supply chain, dealing a blow that Australia’s kangaroo industry is unlikely to survive. Our effort will include working with allies in Congress to introduce bipartisan legislation in Congress to prohibit buying or selling of kangaroo parts in the United States.
Animal Wellness Action has a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. AWA champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. AWA advocate for policies to stop dogfighting, cockfighting, horse soring, and other forms of malicious cruelty and confront factory farming, cosmetic testing, wildlife trafficking, and other systemic forms of animal exploitation.
