Documentary Screening – Unlocking the Cage

Friday September 8, 7:30 pm to 9:15 pm | Studio Theatre | Film Screening

Unlocking the Cage follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. After thirty years struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, Steven and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), are making history by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform an animal from a thing with no rights to a person with legal protections. 

Introduced by Camille Labchuk of Animal Justice.
