Lunch & Learn: Protecting Animals and Workers Amidst COVID-19 Outbreaks at Slaughterhouses
Date: 12:00pm - 1:00pm PDT June 30
Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty
Topic: Protecting Animals and Workers Amidst COVID-19 Outbreaks at Slaughterhouses
Slaughterhouse workers are among the most exploited and disenfranchised people in the United States, and they have been hit especially hard by COVID-19. Slaughterhouses across the country have been the epicenter of massive outbreaks and as a result have shut their doors temporarily, leaving farmers with nowhere to send animals for slaughter. Millions of animals are being killed and discarded using unregulated and horrifically cruel methods, including choking with foam and shutting off ventilation systems. This presentation will discuss efforts to address this exploitation of both workers and animals, including current litigation by Lewis & Clark’s Animal Law Litigation Clinic.
Presenter: Clinical Professor Delci Winders.
