Just wanted to let folks know about a couple free webinars on effective advocacy that I'm doing. The two-part series helps people understand and act on what it takes to get people to change their behavior.
The first one, "How to Get Better Result from Your Time, Money, and Energy" is now available as a recording at http://www.aspcapro.org/recorded-webinars.php (in the "Engaging Community Section).
You can join us live for "Using Research to Avoid Wasting your Precious Resources" this coming Monday (7/23) at 3 pm eastern or snag the recording on that one later:
Both these webinars feature companion animal examples such as adoption, spay/neuter, and anti-tethering. If you'll be at the Animal Rights National Conference in August, I'll be giving a talk using primarily veg advocacy examples.
All the talks are based on my book Animal Impact: Secrets Proven to Achieve Results and Move the World. There are special discounts on the book via the webinars and at the conference. At the Taking Action for Animals conference, there's a book-signing.
Hope to see raw friends at either conference or online.
Great idea. I hope your speaking engagement goes over well.
You have the following listed as organizations with success The Winnipeg Humane Society
I am curious how or where has this organization "The Winnipeg Humane Society" achieved success?
They have had over 10,000 signatures on the ban of gestation crates, use large displays in malls, and other outreach programs.
and they have been able to make little progress.
I notice on the link above you used them as an example.
I highlight their creative idea on the "Black Dog Club." As you may know, black animals are often overlooked by potential adopters. By establishing this club, with gift shop discounts and a lot of humor, I think they make black dogs stand out in a positive way. I use this as an illustration of "fun" as part of making animal-friendly behavior fun, easy, and popular. It's fairly new, so I don't have the results yet.
While I'm posting, confirmed in Baltimore for a free talk using veg examples, hosted by Compassion Over Killing, on Thursday August 23rd at 7 pm.:
