Webinar Speaker: Kim Wolf, Founder of Beyond Breed
Date: Friday, July 12, 2013 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT
Length: 60 minutes
Description: Is your community considering laws that target certain dog breeds (i.e., breed specific legislation)? Are you trying to repeal discriminatory laws already on the books? Whether you work for a shelter, run a rescue, or own a dog, this presentation offers strategies for effectively advocating for safe and humane communities for people and pets alike. While the focus is on challenging breed-specific legislation, the concepts can be applied to many types of animal welfare advocacy and community organizing. It will also benefit advocates working on behalf of pit bull dogs, both in shelters and in the community. This presentation draws from the fields of marketing, psychology, political science, public relations, and sociology.
