Data for Activists: Get the Information You Need

One of the most important tools No Kill advocates have is data, but often shelter data seems impossible to find and when you do find it it seems impossible to understand. Leave this session knowing what data you need and how to get it, through the use of public information requests. You will learn how to understand what these numbers are telling you and how this information can be used to influence shelter leadership and your community to save more animals lives.
