TBA Animal Law Section members Shannon Romain and Daina Bray recently attended a joint public service project between the American Bar Association’s Animal Law Committee and the Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers (H.E.A.R.T.). The program, held on April 8 at the historic Berry Hill Community Center in Nashville, is designed to train adult volunteers to have conversations about animal and environmental welfare with 4th and 5th-grade students in classroom and group settings. The goal of the H.E.A.R.T is to help students develop critical thinking skills and encourage animal and environmental compassion through nonjudgmental dialogues about real-world experiences. Bray was instrumental in bringing the program to Nashville, which included one-day training for Davidson County attorneys and youth counselors from various local organizations. Stay tuned for details on next year’s training program.
