"HU-MAINE: Creating a Kinder World for Animals"

Katie Hansberry
Maine Senior State Director
The Humane Society of the United States

Nearly everyone's life is impacted in some way by animals, and of course we humans impact the lives of animals. The Humane Society of the United States is leading the way to a humane and sustainable world for all animals -- a world that will also benefit people.

Katie will talk about the work being done in Maine to create meaningful social change for animals. She'll share information about the advocacy for sensible public policies, working to enforce existing laws, educating the public about animal issues, and conducting hands-on programs.

You'll also learn about the simple actions you can take in your everyday life to help animals and the people who care for them as well as how to be proactive in building humane communities.  Please note:  We understand that many people are very sensitive to animal abuse stories and photos.  We are too! That's why we've asked Katie to emphasize the positive in her presentation. 

As Maine senior state director for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Katie Hansberry  works to support animal welfare legislation, fight animal cruelty in all forms, and engage citizens to promote the protection of all animals.
She is a board member of the Maine Federation of Human Societies, State of Maine Animal Resource Team, and New England Federation of Humane Societies.

Katie received her bachelor's degree in economics and environmental studies from Bowdoin College and then went on to graduate from Boston College Law School and practice as a civil litigation attorney. She decided to focus her career on animal welfare and pursued a master's degree in Animals and Public Policy at Tufts Veterinary School. She joined HSUS in 2012 and resides in Portland with her cats Goody and Boots, as well as her Corgis, Scully and Mulder.
