Description

In Idaho, Utah, and now Wyoming, federal courts have struck down, as unconstitutional speech restrictions, “Ag Gag” statutes aimed at criminalizing photography and undercover investigations at animal agriculture facilities. Challengers have defeated many of these corporate-backed attempts to trample the First Amendment rights of activists and journalists, but the fight continues with new legal challenges on the horizon. Come hear about how the Animal Legal Defense Fund is taking Ag Gag to court—and winning.
