Recently CWI Executive Director Carrie LeBlanc was invited to speak at a rally for Billy the elephant held in front of the Los Angeles Zoo.
For nearly three decades, Billy has languished at the LA Zoo, a "gift" from the Malaysian government. Efforts to remove Billy to a suitable sanctuary have been ongoing, but there is renewed energy behind the effort thanks to the Elephant Guardians of Los Angeles. CWI was pleased to help them organize their first-ever demonstration for Billy, and their rallies have been conducted regularly since then.
