IHACX-0003 – Humane Communities 3: Missed Opportunities of Shying Away from Public Policy (IHACX-0003_2020)

Dimensions of Humane Communities Webinar Series: Community-Based Human-Animal-Environment Interactions 3

The third edition of the Dimensions of Humane Communities online lecture series is now available as a recording! Discounts still apply and upon registration, you will receive a link to view this important event.

Public policy engagement is a long, drawn-out process that we tend to shy away for myriad reasons – time, resources, attention, anxiety, exhaustion, fear, inexperience – just to name a few. But to effect long-term and sustainable change, you need multiple stakeholders – corporate, nonprofit, community, philanthropy, and yes even government – from diverse areas to all come together on collective action that actually makes a difference. In this session we will review some of the challenges, why and how to overcome them, and a bird’s-eye view on current examples of non-traditional, yet successful public policy engagement that drives collective impact benefiting animals and their families.

About the Speaker: Vince Wong serves as Director of Collective Impact for the Michelson Found Animals Foundation. As Found Animals' liaison to elected officials, government agencies and civic organizations, he spearheads its public policy and civic engagement initiatives including research on the vital effects pets have on human health and aligning the conversation with what pets in society means.
