Be Part of the Solution: Lack of Diversity in Animal Welfare

As we all strive to make our field more equitable and inclusive for People of Color (POC), NEFHS is committed to helping you navigate this journey. On October 15 from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., we invite you to join our first live panel discussion on this topic, with CARE President James Evans and other key speakers from CARE, Best Friends, Grassroots Advocacy and Animal Protection Society of Durham.


This three-part virtual series on diversity will address the disproportionate, negative impact many organizational, local, and state animal welfare policies and practices have on POC and stress the need for continued evaluation, listening and learning for all of us – until systemic racism no longer exists.
