"Unlocking the Cage" is an excellent 2016 documentary that gives us an intimate look at the work of a group of dedicated attorneys who seek to break down the wall that separates humans from animals.

After 30 years of struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, renowned animal rights attorney Steven Wise and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), have found a novel way to protect animals. They are making history by filing the first lawsuits, in the U.S., that seek to transform an animal (elephants, cetaceans and nonhuman apes) from a thing with no rights to a person with legal protections. Please join us if you can!

Event will be held at the home of Don and Ginny Robertson, 517 Talbott Ave. in Lutherville, MD, 21093. It's the first house on the right after turning right from Morris Ave. onto Talbott Ave. Suggested donation is $5.00, with the proceeds to benefit the Nonhuman Rights Project. Please RSVP by calling 410-252-3043. Use the same number if you need help with directions. Vegan snacks will be provided.
