HUGE GRATITUDE TO CITY OF OJAI, CALIFORNIA ON BEHALF OF ELEPHANTS

Elephants have the right to liberty in Ojai, California!  The city of Ojai made legal history for nonhuman beings by becoming the first city in the US to recognize the legal right of a nonhuman being following a 4-1 vote by the Ojai City Council.  Introduced by Council Member Leslie Rule and developed with and supported by the Nonhuman Rights Project, the ordinance defines and protects elephants’ right to liberty.  Thank you to Leslie, Professor Wise and the Nonhuman Rights Project TEAM.  We are five minutes before the miracle…Let’s GOOOOOOO!!!

United Nations Headquarters SDG Action Weekend in NY on September 16 and 17, 2023

I enjoyed the Honor and the Privilege of attending the United Nations Headquarters SDG Action Weekend in NY on September 16 and 17, 2023, and it proved AMAZING!!!
I learned where I need to focus my advocacy and legislation, and met the appropriate contacts to commence dialogues.
For example, I learned that the UN defines “food transformation” as reducing, rather than eliminating, “meat and milk” because according to one of my contacts, less developed countries do not have access to the nutrition that developed countries do and they need “protein” from nonhuman flesh and secretions.  Additionally, he claims that the elimination of factory farming is not necessary to sufficiently reduce carbon emissions.
Of course, we Know the two aforementioned statements remain FALSE.
My contact and I agreed to communicate via email to share statistics regarding protein and carbon emissions in order to engage in productive discussions.
I attended the conference because, after I finally drafted a proposed charter amendment for the UN (as the time is ripe), and emailed same and supporting documentation to almost all of the 193 members (except four countries that remain involved in heated controversies to the point where Americans should not visit their countries although one head of state surprisingly attended the UN GA Summit), I realized my proposed charter amendment resolved six of the 17 UN SDGs as follows: 

1 No Poverty

2 Zero Hunger

3 Good Health and Well-Being

13 Climate Action

14 Life Below Water

15 Life on Land

In addition, I learned I should attend the UN RBA meetings.
The three UN Rome based agencies (RBAs),
Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO);
International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD);
World Food Programme (WFP);
offer a vast range of knowledge, financial and technical expertise, and discuss policy issues related to food security, agriculture and nutrition.

Resolution of Six of United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs created 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the purpose of a World Wide, Universal Call to Action to create a more Fair, Just and Equitable world.

New Hope Now’s proposed Charter Amendment Resolves the following six (6) of the 17 SDGs:

1 No Poverty

2 Zero Hunger

3 Good Health and Well-Being

13 Climate Action

14 Life Below Water

15 Life on Land
