The Oklahoma Link Coalition "Intersection" conference was a huge success! 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.
