Animal Law Summer School: How to Use Grassroots Advocacy to Change Local Laws to Protect Animals
Thursday, July 29th; 12:00 – 1:00 pm PT
Join us to learn how you can use grassroots advocacy techniques to lobby city and county governments, and pass laws to improve the welfare of animals. Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Animal Law Program Director, Stacey Gordon Sterling, will share her experience leading a campaign that successfully banned the display and performance of wild and exotic animals in Missoula, Montana. She’ll explore how the techniques used in this campaign can be implemented to advocate for local laws like tethering bans, pet sale bans, fur bans, and more. Stacey will also be joined by Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Communications Director, Elizabeth Putsche, to discuss the role of social media in grassroots advocacy and share hints on how advocates can use social media platforms effectively.
