SPEAKING FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

MORETTI’S MUSINGS

The Power of the Press

More than 50 years ago, when the United States Air Force’s cargo plane transported our family to South America, I was privy to an experience I will never forget. With only a flight crew on board, and basically empty, my...

My Hero, the Marlboro Man

Come on, Mister. Do what you do best. Bring the ponies home. I have come to Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge in southeastern Oregon’s outback to participate in yet another roundup of wild horses. If we can’t catch the animals,...

I Beg to Differ…Yet Again

It was one of those lazy Saturday afternoons when I knew my computer-fried brain couldn’t take another minute of web design formatting codes lest I be locked up for life. I decided to paint a living room wall instead. And...

Laura greets wild horses she helped to save from the government and relocated to the Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary

Laura Moretti is one of the few DaVincians I have ever known. What Laura has created is a work of great merit in its own right. What a piece of good fortune it is to have a person of such remarkable talents devote her life to using them in the struggle for animal rights. What a privilege to have those talents used to help this work reach a larger audience. Thank you says too little for so large a gift.

From the age of 10, Laura Moretti has been active on behalf of animals in every way possible, from their hands-on rescue to their plight on the world stage—in legislation, education, as a student and a teacher, through her writing and her graphic design, on foot and in front, on camera and behind the scenes.

Animal Rights Activist at Large…
Laura began her activism for animals in La Paz, Bolivia, at the age of 10, determined to defend hapless street dogs by hiding them from shooters, and by ‘relocating’ other animals to prevent their slaughter. As an early teen, Laura was actively involved in petitioning the Canadian government to end the annual baby seal slaughter. And by high school, she had already acquired a chapter of The Fund for Animals and used it to educate her community about the plight of animals around the globe.

Laura wanted to teach the philosophy of animal rights, but the California State University in Chico laughed her off its campus. The laugh is on them now, of course, because animal rights is taught in most of the major colleges and universities in the country (and throughout the world)—including at California State University, Chico.

But Laura decided to teach in another way. Using her talent and experience of combining pictures with the right words, she created fliers and newspaper ads, as well as newsletters, posters, books, pamphlets, bumper stickers, billboards, leaflets, business cards, etc., all of which eventually led to her creation of a magazine (see The Animals Voice Magazine). She has also since transferred her graphics skills to the Internet.

From an undercover agent for the New Jersey SPCA, to a lobbyist for animal protective legislation in every state she has ever lived in, to hands-on rescue of wild horses, to magazine and web site publishing, to serving on the board or advisory boards of various organizations, including her current positions with Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary and Animal Guardians (as an International Ambassador), Laura has been an activist for animals for 50-plus years, earning a respected position in the animal rights movement worldwide.

Laura Moretti was inducted into the Animal Rights Hall of Fame in 2004.

In her spare time, Laura designs and maintains other web sites, such as actor David Soul’s official site, a memorial site for the late actor Pete Duel, and a memorial site for the late animal rights movement Founding Father, Tom Regan. Laura’s political work beyond animal rights activism may be found at the Me & Thee Productions site which is produced by David Soul and his team (Team Soul), of which Laura is a founding member.
