Defending New York’s Animals: Bella’s Bill and Beyond

The Animal Legal Defense Fund is leading a coalition to strengthen New York’s outdated animal cruelty laws by passing Bella’s Bill in the New York legislature. But we need your help to make Bella’s Bill a reality. We’re holding events across New York in March to help gather support for the bill.

Join the Animal Legal Defense Fund in New York City, Albany, Syracuse, or New Rochelle for an engaging presentation about Bella’s Bill as well as the basics on how to effectively lobby for animals!

Tuesday, March 5 – New York City
Wednesday, March 6 – Albany
Thursday, March 7 – Syracuse
Friday, March 8 – New Rochelle
