How can Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) chapters get involved? SALDF chapters are encouraged to host events to raise awareness about criminal justice issues in animal law.

Suggested Events & Projects

  • Table during lunch or class breaks (ALDF can provide free materials).
  • Hold a film screening.
  • Email or call your representative about pending local, state, or federal legislation. Check city and state government websites for current legislation, or contact us to see if there is pending legislation in your area.
  • Organize an ALDF Benefit Day by contacting a local vegan/vegetarian restaurant or animal-friendly business to see if they would donate a percentage of their total daily sales to ALDF to help us win the case against cruelty.
  • Host a guest speaker.
  • Find more project ideas here.

Suggested Speaker Topics

Your SALDF chapter can apply for a project grant to support your event. You can also receive a grant for a SALDF banner to use during NJAW and other chapter events. If your chapter is interested in getting involved and receiving promotional materials, please contact Student Programs Coordinator Kelly Levenda at
