Connecting Through Collaboration
2017 offered the NEAVS’ staff, board of directors, donors, and supporters, exciting opportunities to personally connect with other animal advocates—individuals who inspire action!
NEAVS hosted a reception and presentation by Jill Robinson, Founder & CEO, Animals Asia; and a book signing featuring Jo-Anne McArthur, renowned Photojournalist/Author/Educator, We Animals. We were proud to present live webinars prior to each event—highlighting their tireless efforts to promote compassion for all sentient beings.
In addition, we participated in community outreach via tabling events—such as New England VegFest and the NH SPCA Paws Walk—which enabled NEAVS’ staff members to answer questions, provide educational materials, and offer the public ways to become directly involved with our mission.
We enjoyed increasing our social network of animal advocates to help spread the word to family and friends about such important issues as promoting passage of the U.S. Humane Cosmetics Act (HCA); educating students and teachers about school dissection choice; advancing science through NEAVS' current fellowship grant recipient, Dr. Sushila Maharjan, working on organs-on-chips and 3-D tissue models as alternatives to using animal models in biomedical research; providing sanctuary support for animals rescued from labs; and growing NEAVS' volunteer opportunities!
We believe that by building strong relationships, and collaborating together, we’re working toward successfully achieving NEAVS' mission.
