We are requesting nominations for election to the US
Animal Rights Hall of Fame. All US residents, living or dead, currently
active or not, are eligible (except for Alex Hershaft, because of his
key role in launching the project). Each nomination, including a brief
summary of the person's contribution, should be sent privately to [email protected]
The Hall of Fame will be launched at Animal Rights 2000,
the national conference taking place July 1-5 near the nation's capital.
The purpose is to recognize the outstanding contribution of selected
individuals to the recognition of animal rights.
In order to give due consideration to the past two
decades of our movement's history, four of the five individuals elected
this year must have begun their activity before 1991. In future years,
this number should decrease gradually, until the starting year is no
longer a limiting factor.
The voting will be conducted by the speakers at Animal
Rights 2000 and subsequent national animal rights conferences. In years
when there is no national conference, the Summit for the Animals will be
asked to conduct the election.
The US Animal Rights Hall of Fame will be governed by a
committee composed of two representative of past inductees, one
representative of the Summit for the Animals Executive Committee, and
one representative of the national conference organizers.
Your comments on the concept and management of the US
Animal Rights Hall of Fame should be sent privately to [email protected]
