BUILD YOUR ANIMAL ACTIVISM SKILLS


NEAVS Workshops
are an opportunity to provide you with the resources, knowledge, and comradery you need to throw the cage doors open. 

In these online workshops, you pick up skills like how to speak to the media and craft a powerful message. You meet like-minded individuals from other cities in a space where we can learn from each other to build the capacity of our local campaigns. And you join a growing community that is harnessing the power of organizing to end experiments on animals.

The Philosophy Behind NEAVS Workshops

To grow our movement to free animals from labs, we must strive to take the next step up the ladder of engagement. Each step a person takes creates more people power in our movement.

If you’ve signed a petition, you’re ready to take action. And if you’ve taken action, you’re ready for NEAVS workshops. These trainings are the next step in building you up to become an organizer in your community and create strategic campaigns for animals that you can win. 

Make no mistake, we are up against a multi-billion dollar industry. When you first start advocating for animals in labs, you will run into lots of roadblocks. We’re here to help you bypass those roadblocks. To understand what is happening inside the windowless buildings. To tell their story to the public. And to build momentum that cannot be ignored.

Crafting your Message to Break Through Scientific Jargon

October 23, 2019
7:00 - 8:30 PM EST (4:00-5:30 PM PST)
Max participants: 30

Every campaign needs a story, but how do we tell the stories of animals trapped inside windowless laboratories that we’ve never met? There are many resources at our fingertips to learn about what is happening to them - we just need to break through the cold jargon used by the industry that hides the grim reality of what is really happening to animals. Learn how to decipher language about cruel experiments, and start building your own compelling story!

Recruitment Through Relationship Building

August 14, 2019
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST (4:00-5:30 PM PST)

Relationship Building is the heart of building capacity within our movement. This workshop will be interactive and provide plenty of opportunity for us all to connect and put theories into practice that can help build our groups and our movement. You’ll learn the art of the one-one-meeting, and have a chance to practice it yourself. If you’ve struggled with volunteer recruitment or retention in your movement, this workshop is for you!
