Nonhuman Rights Project

February 24, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Online Add to Calendar

Join us to learn about the enormous work that Steve Wise and the Nonhuman Rights Project have been advancing to gain legal rights for nonhuman animals for years. The Nonhuman Rights Project is the only civil rights organization in the United States dedicated solely to securing rights for nonhuman animals. Our groundbreaking work challenges an archaic, unjust legal status quo that views and treats all nonhuman animals as “things” with no rights. As with human rights, nonhuman rights are based on fundamental values and principles of justice such as liberty, autonomy, equality, and fairness. All of human history shows that the only way to truly protect human beings’ fundamental interests is to recognize their rights. It’s no different for nonhuman animals.
