While COVID was a challenge, I believe we also learned incredible lessons that showed us different effective advocacy and outreach techniques that we never would have ventured into without this push. Our virtual meetings connected us with an activist in Chicago; ever since his first meeting he has attended all of our virtual meetings and was even inspired to start his own animal rights organization. Without COVID, we probably never would have realized students from other states would also be positively impacted by our actions!

Our activities are sustained because we truly try to build a network of friendship and support for our members and students.

Graduation turnover is always bittersweet. It’s amazing to see our activists go and do great things in their own lives, but it’s sad to see them go.
