Animal Rights Hall of Fame
Source: FARM <[email protected]>

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]
