As animal advocates have attempted to win policy advances through the traditional vehicles of legislation and regulatory action, they often have run into roadblocks within the relevant legislative committees and agencies. These barriers persist despite polling that shows the overwhelming majority of voters support such animal welfare measures. Accordingly, advocacy organizations have had to develop creative alternative avenues to ensure such public sentiment is effectively translated into positive public policy. These alternative means have enabled many in the animal protection movement to achieve concrete successes for farmed animals, captive wildlife, animals used in research, and the availability of alternatives to animal products. In this presentation, Chris Green will discuss several real-world examples employing such strategies and also highlight the fundamental relevance of academic scholarship to support these advocacy endeavors.
