WWAIL begins Covance focus of Chandler event!
As WWAIL kicks off, the Covance controversy compels Chandler's first
time participation in this global remembrance of animals killed and
suffering in institutions. Citizens Against Covance will address
Covance's many offenses, including the recent decision and fine
handed down by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
for violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA).
This will be a rally with speakers and visuals. We will give an
update on the latest Covance news and our plans to stop them from
coming to Chandler. Stephanie Nichols-Young, President of Animal
Defense League of Arizona (ADLA), former Board member of Animal
Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) is scheduled to address the attendees.
Signs and flyers will be provided.
[Should you be approached by media, please direct them to the
designated spokespersons. If they really press you for a statement,
our message is concise and consistent: "Covance has been cited and
fined for multiple violations of federal law and we do not want such
companies in our community."]
We invite concerned individuals everywhere to help us turn up the
heat and stop Covance!
