Student Chapters

Get Involved in National Justice for Animals Week!

How can Student Chapters Get Involved?

National Justice for Animals Week is a yearly event dedicated to raising public awareness nationwide about criminal animal abuse, including how to report it, and how to work within your community to create stronger laws and ensure tough enforcement. Learn more about the annual event here.

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 (we 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 Animal Legal Defense Fund 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 Animal Legal Defense Fund to help us win the case against cruelty.
  • Host a guest speaker.
  • Find more project ideas here.

Suggested Speaker Topics

Your chapter can apply for a project grant to support your event. You can also receive a grant for a student chapter banner to use during National Justice for Animals Week and and other chapter events. If your chapter is interested in getting involved and receiving promotional materials, please contact the Student Programs Attorney.
