LOS ANGELES, June 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Internationally recognized animal welfare advocate, founder of Peace 4 Animals and World Animal News and filmmaker Katie Cleary currently maintains a full schedule of animal advocacy work globally.
Fortunately, from all over Africa where she has been filming her new documentary "We Are One" to the halls of the California Capitol in Sacramento, Cleary has found a way to combine the many interests of Peace 4 Animals goals to coexist with all species.
Most recently, a camera crew has been following Cleary while documenting her non-profit's collaborative efforts with Social Compassion In Legislation, the sponsor of the bills, at the California State Capitol to turn history-making legislation including (SB1487) The Iconic African Species Protection Act and (SB1249) The California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act into law.
The footage, which also features fellow high-profile animal advocates including Maggie Q, Harley Quinn Smith and John Salley as well as President of Social Compassion in Legislation, Judie Mancuso, lobbying on behalf of the bills, will be interwoven into "We Are One," the follow-up to Cleary's award-winning documentary "Give Me Shelter" that premiered on Netflix in 2014. "We Are One" gives people a much-needed glimpse into various issues throughout the world that need to be addressed from ending cruel and unnecessary testing on animals to what needs to be done to save endangered species from extinction.
