Humane education teaches respect for all living things to people of all ages. Michelle Rivera shows how raising awareness of the needs of animals and society’s responsibility to them can help stop not only violence against animals but also violence against humans. Out of her research and interviews with experts in psychology, education and sociology, Rivera has created a guide for all who want to begin teaching humane education in their homes, classrooms, communities, churches and organizations.

Michelle Rivera is co-founder and director of Animals 101, Inc. a humane education project in South Florida. She has received numerous awards in the fields of animal rescue and humane education, including the prestigious Superintendent’s Award for Excellence in Education, and is a board member of the Association of Professional Humane Educators (APHE).
