The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents "Taking Action for Animals: How Each One of Us Can Make This a More Humane World" with Susan Emerson Clapp, Senior Director of Philanthropy for the Humane Society of the US (HSUS).
HSUS is the nation's most effective animal protection organization. HSUS and its affiliates provide hands-on care and services to more than 100,000 animals each year, and work to professionalize the field through education and training for local organizations.
Since 1964, HSUS has been driving transformational change in the US and around the world by combating large-scale cruelties such as puppy mills, animal fighting, factory farming, seal slaughter, horse cruelty, captive hunts and the wildlife trade.
Susan will also speak about the role of the Humane Society in the fight for animals, what are the greatest threats animals face today and how can each of us help?
This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch.

Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
