Wayne Pacelle: The Humane Economy

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Wayne Pacelle, CEO and President of the Humane Society of the United States, speak about his fight for animal rights and get a signed copy of his book on Tuesday, April 26, at 7pm.

In the month of March 2016 alone, SeaWorld pledged to end orca breeding and to institute other animal welfare reforms, the fashion giant Armani agreed to go fur-free for all of its clothing lines, and a dozen more of the biggest names in the food business agreed to change their policies and stop buying eggs that come from hens in cages. The common thread in these announcements was the involvement of The Humane Society of the United States and its crusading CEO Wayne Pacelle. HumaneEconomy HC.JPG

The Humane Economy – 
Conscience and creativity are driving a revolution in American business that is changing forever how we treat animals and create wealth. In this hugely important book, Wayne Pacelle reveals how entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 CEOs, world-class scientists, philanthropists, and a new class of political leaders are driving the burgeoning, unstoppable growth of the “humane economy.”

“THE HUMANE ECONOMY is essential reading for anyone interested in animal welfare. This fabulous book reveals the inside story of how the fight against human cruelty to animals is gradually being won and some of the surprising individuals who have helped to make this happen. HSUS’s Wayne Pacelle is to be congratulated on writing a fascinating, highly readable, and remarkably comprehensive book, covering animal issues ranging from factory farms to puppy mills, from trophy hunting to genetic modification, from medical and pharmaceutical testing to entertainment. Please help to increase awareness of ongoing animal suffering by sharing this book and encouraging everyone to take some part in creating a truly humane society.” —Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace

The author of The New York Times best-seller, The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them, Pacelle appears frequently as a guest on national news shows and as a speaker at conferences and universities, and is the author of a powerful treatise published this year in Foreign Affairs called “The Long Road to Animal Welfare.”
