The Agricultural Gag Laws--Your First Amendment Rights, Your Health, Animal Welfare, and Our Environment

Yale Law School Animal Legal Defense and the Connecticut Bar Association Animal Law Section proudly present this year's conference entitled "The Agricultural Gag Laws--Your First Amendment Rights, Your Health, Animal Welfare, and Our Environment."  Eight states currently have agricultural gag laws that criminalize whistleblowers who expose animal cruelty and food safety issues in farming practices through undercover investigations, and many other states have considered or are considering such legislation. This year's conference will examine the impact of these laws on freedom of speech, health, food safety, consumer advocacy, animal welfare, and the environment. The conference will bring together prominent individuals and activists from the animal law, food law, health law, and journalism fields. The keynote address will be delivered by the Humane Society of the United States CEO, Wayne Pacelle.

Speakers
Amanda Hitt, Director, Food Integrity Campaign for the Government Accountability Project
Matthew Liebman, Senior Attorney, Animal Legal Defense Fund's Litigation Progam
Alicia Wagner Calzada, Chair, Advocacy Committee, National Press Photographers Association
Wayne Pacelle, CEO, Humane Society of the United States
Taylor Radig, Social Justice/Animal Rights Activist
Paige Tomaselli, Senior Attorney, Center for Food Safety
