On Friday, November 11, the University Center for Human Values will kick off a weekend symposium on the effective altruism movement in regards to animal welfare with the public lecture: Effective Altruism & Animals.  The symposium will bring together multidisciplinary scholars and researchers in ethics and relevant fields with individuals from nonprofit and animal advocacy groups to discuss and collaborate on issues relating to ethics, animal welfare, psychology, advocacy and effective altruism.

This innovative cross-disciplinary conference will bring together researchers, professors and graduate students across various disciplines who are conducting or planning work which has practical application to the animal advocacy movement.  The symposium is cosponsored by the University Center for Human Values, Princeton Animal Welfare Society, and Animal Charity Evaluators, a nonprofit organization.
