Dear Farm Animal Friends,
With one month down and 4 to go in the signature-gathering campaign,
we are lagging behind on the number of signatures we should be getting
to reach the goal of 650,000 by February in order to qualify for the
November 2008 ballot. Every signature we can get will help us reach this
goal, so even if you're not up for gathering hundreds of signatures, you
can still help out however much your schedule permits. If you've already
signed up to volunteer to gather signatures, thank you!!! If not, please
attend one of five special events next week in the
Los Angeles area for
the Californians for Humane Farms campaign. We need every Californian who
cares about the humane treatment of farms animals to be a part of this
exciting effort to get a measure on the 2008 ballot to ban cruel confinement
of calves, pigs and hens. Thank you so much for your support and for all you
do for animals.
JOIN THE CALIFORNIANS FOR HUMANE FARMS CAMPAIGN!
Your help is needed to put a measure (the Prevention of Farm
Animal Cruelty Act) on the 2008 ballot that would outlaw the
cruel confinement of veal calves, egg-laying hens, and breeding
pigs. This important measure will phase out the use of the gestation
crate for pigs, the battery cage for egg-laying hens and prevent
the use of the veal crate for male calves.
We have only four short months to qualify this initiative for
the November 2008 ballot. If thousands of volunteers join the
effort to collect 650,000 signatures, we can secure a place for
this precedent-setting measure on the ballot!
Please attend a special campaign event near you starting on
November 5. Joining Wayne Pacelle of the HSUS will be special
guests Mike Markarian, The HSUS's Executive Vice President, and
Gene Baur, Founder of Farm Sanctuary. We'll share how you can
become a crucial member of the team of volunteers that will put
this precedent-setting measure on the ballot.
