July has been an exciting month so far for ACE!

We updated our Survey Guidelines, providing resources for animal advocacy groups to evaluate the effectiveness of their own programs.

We worked with Huffington Post to get this fantastic article published, by Nico Pitney.

We launched our Animal Advocacy Research Fund, so academics and organizations can now apply for funding on research projects. We hope that this project will provide much-needed evidence to help all animal advocates be more effective in their work.

I was really pleased to see that Research Fund! I am really looking forward to the results in time - I feel that there are a bunch of people waiting for more research in the animal advocacy field before taking action.

Great article in HP, nice job getting it there! And as an academic myself, I'm glad to see you putting some funding into helping get them on board with providing evidence for animal advocates!
