    The animal protection movement views itself as engaged in a fight against systemic oppression. Like other civil rights movements, it seeks to expand the arc of the law's protections for the subjugated and the disempowered. This panel of constitutional, criminal, and animal law experts will address the successes and failures of the movement as a civil rights initiative. Does animal protection provide a path towards more general anti-oppression efforts, or is it replicating the problems of race, gender, and power that characterize society more generally?

    Business meeting at program conclusion.
