Today marks the beginning of the third annual National Justice for Animals Week, sponsored by the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF). The weeklong campaign to fight animal abuse and honor animal victims starts February 21. ALDF will announce America’s Top 10 Animal Defenders and will also post daily action items on its blog and Facebook page for people to participate in. To kick off the week, ALDF suggests writing a letter to the editor about animal justice to a local paper. ALDF consists of more than 100,000 members, and has worked to protect and advance animals’ lives for the past three decades.
