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.
