Student Animal Legal Defense Fund
March 20: Discussion on "Ag Gag" Legislation
Date: Tuesday, March 20
Time: Noon to 1 p.m.
Come hear several representatives from Mercy for Animals speak on proposed state "Ag Gag" legislation that would outlaw undercover investigations that reveal abuses on factory farms. Such laws, known as "ag gag laws" because of the restraints they place on free speech about agribusiness, make it a crime to take photos or video on a factory farm without the written permission of the owner. The factory farming lobby has advocated these laws as a means of keeping the public in the dark about how its food is produced. This program will be of interest to anyone interested in animal or environmental law, or the First Amendment and other constitutional issues.

Women in Law
WIL's Diversity Week Event: Miss Representation
This critically acclaimed film brings together some of America's most influential women in politics, news and entertainment, including Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem, to give audiences an inside look at the media's message and depiction of women. The film explores women's under-representation in positions of power by challenging their limited and often disparaging portrayals in the media. Miss Representation takes the stand that the media is portraying women's primary values as their youth, beauty and sexuality--rather than their capacity as leaders.
More information is available here: www.missrepresentation.org.
Dinner will be provided, and Professor Baker will lead a discussion following the film. Come early--we anticipate a large turnout for this event!
