As interest in The Link has grown globally, it has become increasingly more important to make resource materials about the connections between animal abuse and human violence available in languages other than English. The National Link Coalition is pleased to include the following materials in our National Resource Center, and encourages our friends in other countries to translate Link materials and share them with us.
Also see our list of Link Coalitions in other countries to connect with individuals and Italy-Sorcinelli-PartnersInCrime Italy-Sorcinelli-ZooanthropoligyOfDeviance organizations working together to stop animal abuse and human violence.
