Event description: 

Wayne Hsiung focuses his activism on exposing cruelty and rescuing animals in factory farms, leading to a “domestic terrorism” investigation by the FBI. He currently faces 16 felony charges in 4 criminal cases and will go on trial in mid 2020. His work has been featured in WIRED, The New York Times, and The Intercept.
In this talk, activist and former environmental law professor Wayne Hsiung discusses how climate change has devastated non-human life, why that matters for the future of human civilization, and why building animal rights into our political system – starting with a single green,compassionate city (a #GreenNewCity) – is the fastest way out of the climate crisis.
