The ROAR Program
The Animal Legal Defense Fund has a social media ambassador program! Remote Online Advocacy Representatives (ROAR) are online partners who help us spread the word about important animal issues.
What is ROAR?
ROAR is for people who care about animals and want to get more involved with the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s work. The ROAR program is a way for supporters to amplify key issues and projects so that more people can take action on important issues affecting animals. ROAR members also receive perks and other benefits.
What do ROAR members do?
ROAR members commit to posting at least once a week about the Animal Legal Defense Fund on one of their social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn). Don’t worry – we’ll provide you with suggested content in weekly emails. You can also simply click ‘share’ and repost content from the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Twitter and Facebook channels.
With so much information and content out in the world today, it’s getting harder for our message to reach people. ROAR members amplify the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s voice, and the voice of animals, by increasing the number of people we reach. For example, we share Action Alerts asking people to contact their legislators or other government officials about important animal issues. But people can’t take action if they don’t see the alert. ROAR members ensure that more people are able to advocate for animals.
Do ROAR members receive benefits?
- Members in the United States will receive a special patch.
