As president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, Wayne Pacelle has some stories to tell. The man behind dozens of federal statutes and state laws protecting animals -- including banning certain factory farming methods, prohibiting dog fighting, accounting for pets in disaster planning and many more -- has unleashed a powerful vocal movement to advocate for the furred and feathered. Now he comes to Kepler's in Menlo Park with his new book, The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers are Transforming the Lives of Animals, which explores how both buyers and businesses are making increasingly progressive choices that benefit both humans and animals. Known as a dynamic speaker, Pacelle will sign copies of the book following the discussion.
Books are not included, but may be purchased at the event.
