Save the date for this exciting gathering hosted by the Kirkpatrick Foundation Registration will open July 20, 2018 - check back for details.
The Oklahoma Link Coalition "Intersection" conference was a huge success! On November 7, 2017, over 100 professionals from a wide variety of fields, including law enforcement, criminal justice, domestic violence, animal organizations, veterinary, and social services, came together to learn about the LINK and how to work collaboratively to reduce violence in our state.
The event was covered by a number of news outlets, bringing larger awareness to Oklahomans of the link between animal abuse and family and community violence.
Thank you to the Kirkpatrick Foundation for supporting both animal and human well-being in the state of Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Link Coalition promotes collaboration, cooperation, public awareness, and education to end violence against people and animals by recognizing the link between human and animal abuse. The Coalition is a project of the Kirkpatrick Foundation under its Safe & Humane initiative.
