Uniting for Animals in Mexico

Please join us for a conversation with Gerardo Tristan Alvarado, an Indian (Nahuatl = Aztec) descendent and Mexican citizen. He’ll talk with us about the new National Coalition for the Welfare of Animals, which is composed of thirteen animal rights groups across Mexico. According to Alvarado, “We want to create, review and change the laws regarding animal welfare, introduce a curriculum to the public and private educational system of Mexico and create effective campaigns for the national mass media.” He is particularly interested in global animal rights, and issues of class and culture as they relate to the movement.

Animal Voices will hear about animal activism in Mexico, conditions for animals within the country, and how advocates are joining together for a “unified national agenda.”
