2013 Maine Humane Lobby Day

  • March 28, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Hill Mansion

You don't need to be a professional lobbyist to come to Augusta and advocate for animals!  The Humane Society of the United States invites our members and supporters to participate in Humane Lobby Day 2013 to help make a tremendous difference for animals.

Maine Friends of Animals (http://www.mfoa.net/) will be particpating in the event as well.

This is an exciting opportunity to meet directly with your elected officials about legislation that will significantly impact the lives of animals. There will be a briefing with tips for citizen lobbying, and an overview of pending animal legislation which will prepare you to advocate for policies that will curb and end egregious acts of cruelty.

Legislators are most motivated when their constituents make time to meet with them face to face. By attending Humane Lobby Day 2013, you can be instrumental in helping to implement long overdue protections for bears and much more.

In order to attend this event you MUST RSVP here - http://action.humanesociety.org/site/Calendar?id=108921&view=Detail.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it tomorrow. I hurt my back today. The car ride would make things worse. Sorry. I really wanted to be there.

    Now that that is cleared up.
    Could you suggest a good parking area?
    Estimate of when we will be finishing for the day?
    Thank-you.

      Hi Kathleen. Hopefully you received my email. The Hill Mansion (136 State St, Augusta) has a parking lot and we should be done around 3. If you get to meet with your legislators earlier than that, then you would be finished sooner. I am going to send an email to all of the those that have replied as attending with some more info as I can't fit it all in a comment space.

    OK, I was just reading discussion page and found an entry from 9/28/11 with my name, sent at 3AM. It was not from me!
    I did have a virus that found my addresses around that time and this must be from them. Sorry, and thank you for letting me clear that up.

    Didn't confirm I was attending...only tried to find a ride. No luck so far. Don't know why Meetup thought "not sure" meant "confirmed"
