Why Access to Pet Resources is a Social Justice Issue with Amanda Arrington
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Audience: Alumni, Current Student, Faculty, Families, Neighbor or Friend, Prospective Student, Staff
Amanda Arrington, Senior Director of the groundbreaking Pets for Life (PFL) program at the Humane Society of the United States, discusses how pet ownership crosses all geographic, racial, ethnic and socio-economic boundaries, but access to information and services does not. Institutional bias and systemic inequity can have a negative impact on pets and there is a great need to understand and deepen the connection between animal welfare and social, racial, and economic justice.
