Seattle Student Spending Summer Collecting Signatures To Help WA Chickens Spread Their Wings

Last weekend at the Fremont Fair, I was approached by Shorecrest High School student Kitty Jones to sign the Initiative 1130 petition. It would add a measure to the November election ballot that would prevent extreme confinement of egg-laying hens in Washington State. California voters passed a similar law a couple of years ago. The above video interview is the first of two parts.

Why do you think this ballot initiative is important?

I-1130 is a direct manifestation of the growing public concern for animals and an unsettling reminder to the industries that exploit animals that they cannot cover up their trail of cruelty and abuse.
