Each academic year brings excitement with both new and familiar faces dedicated to protecting animals and advancing their interests. The Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapter Kickoff is an annual celebratory event to welcome students to the new year and highlight resources and opportunities, while providing a unique look at a particular way for chapters to get involved throughout the year. Examples include lobbying, public commenting, grassroots advocacy, and more. The Student Chapter Kickoff is open for student chapter members.

This year’s Student Chapter Kickoff will take place on September 14th, 2021, 12-1pm PT/ 3-4pm ET.
