The Animal Welfare Coalition was newly founded in 2011 by Co-Presidents Valerie Ammirato (Senior) and Chelsea Champion (Junior). We are looking for caring, enthusiastic animal lovers who share a similar mission as our own. We encourage all interested students to attend one of our bi-weekly meetings held throughout the year.
Iona College Animal Welfare Coalition is a student organization that aims to address existing animal rights issues and to promote a more humane environment in Iona's community and world-wide. We plan to facilitate our mission through educational programs and philanthropic endeavors such as fundraising, volunteering, moderating discussions, and disseminating literature both on and off campus. Our outreach will target students, but we will collaborate with current clubs, faculty, facilities, and administration, as well as the community at large and existing animal advocacy organizations to inspire meaningful social and legal change.
