The Allied Scholars for Animal Protection exists to make this world a better place for human and nonhuman animals!
We support students, animal advocates, environmentalists, healthcare professionals, and whoever else wants to join our important cause.
ASAP focuses on both short term (1-5 years) and long term (20-30 years) changes.
By providing a unified infrastructure, ASAP ensures
for the first time that there is a strong, effective, sustained, and
united effort to end animal oppression
on campuses across the country.
The students we train and mentor will become the next generation of industry leaders in health, medicine, journalism, the environmental sciences, business, academia, government, law, and the nonprofit world.
We bring animal advocacy education to different academic settings:
Education about plant-based diet to healthcare professionals and students
Animal law and protection presentations for law schools
Alternatives to animal testing seminars and resources for research centers and biological/medical schools
Lectures on the economy and growth of plant-based foods for business schools
Lectures on legislation and policy making regarding alternatives to animal testing or changing the food system for political sciences majors
Lectures on bioethics
We help students to maintain a continuous presence of animal advocacy on campuses and effectively promote veganism.
Help set up outreach events on campus
Train students to be effective in advocating veganism
Organize workshops exploring common objections to veganism and how to counter them

At the Allied Scholars for Animal Protection, we:
Help research and document the food served at university dining halls, clinics, and hospitals
Organize educational seminars for healthcare professionals.
Connect dining halls with other nonprofit specialized in plant-based dining that will train and guide dining halls to go plant-based
Provide recourses for athletes and students using posters, educational seminars and providing free access to a plant-based fitness coach and a plant-based certified dietician
We see great potential in universities and students to make meaningful and long-lasting change, and the change we want to see in the society starts in universities.
With added guidance from ASAP, students can quickly get up to speed on how to create change at their universities, get the student body on board for creating a better food system and continue creating change beyond their college careers.
