Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Faith Outreach program works with faith communities nationwide under the premise that religious values call upon us to act in a kind and merciful way towards all creatures. Almost all religious traditions have statements regarding animals.
As part of our mission to engage people and institutions of faith with animal protection issues, we are seeking Faith Outreach Volunteers to implement this work in select states nationwide.
Faith Outreach Volunteers will gain a deeper understanding of the intersection between religion and animal protection. They will help bring to light the moral issues of how our society treats animals while strengthening important skills such as networking, critical thinking, and community outreach. They will have the opportunity to work directly with local faith leaders and animal welfare experts as part of a prominent animal welfare organization.
