Who is Voiceless

Voiceless was founded in 2004 by father-daughter team, Brian and Ondine Sherman after learning of the legalised suffering of billions of animals in factory farms. Today they lead a team of experienced lawyers and educators to ‘lift the veil of secrecy’ on institutionalised animal cruelty and help create a better world for animals.

United by their passion for animal protection issues, Voiceless is fortunate to have the support of the following;

Voiceless Patrons are internationally recognised individuals from the highest levels of science, law, business and the arts who are dedicated to raising awareness of Voiceless’ mission.

Voiceless Ambassadors are internationally recognised artists who are committed to ensuring that animal protection is the next great social movement.  Our Ambassadors lend their voices to speak on behalf of animals across all forms of media.

Voiceless Directors and the Voiceless Advisory Group jointly oversee the activities of the organisation.  Drawn from a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences, they are united by their belief in animal protection and work collectively to guide the development of Voiceless.  

Voiceless Scientific Expert Advisory Council (SEAC) is a group of academics from around the world who assists us in the production of quality research and publications which expose legalised animal cruelty and inform public debate.

Voiceless Legal Advisory Council (LAC) is a collection of Australian animal law experts who collaborate with Voiceless to provide their legal expertise and commentary on animal protection matters and review our submissions and other law related publications.
