Event Description: Peter Muller, Director and one of the founders of the League of Humane Voters (LOHV) will present: "Make Your Vote Count for the Animals." The presentation will last an hour and will be followed by a workshop. Total time will be from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. This important presentation is sponsored by Vegetarians of Central Florida (VegCF) and Animal Activists of Central Florida (AACF).

LOHV recognizes that animal protection requires laws and enforcement. Animal exploitation is a political issue and not just a moral one. We intend to make animal rights a mainstream political issue by building support among citizens, activists, political parties, candidates, and elected representatives.

Those who hold elective office can pass and enforce laws to protect animals. After careful interviews, LOHV endorses candidates and then campaigns for their election to public office. We then get out the vote and deliver it for our candidates. Once in office, we lobby the office-holders we helped to get elected to help us enact animal protective legislation.

LOHV believes that the animal rights movement needs to establish its political influence first by developing grassroots movements and influence at the local level. While we occasionally support the election of candidates for federal office, our primary focus is on the state, county and municipal levels of government. We believe that our methods can be replicated throughout the country, and are interested in advising people all across the country in developing animal political advocacy groups.

All chapters are autonomous, and the turn-key easy launch makes it possible to begin to get your chapter active immediately. Twenty-two chapters across the country--and growing--testify to the fact that LOHV chapters impact local elections resulting in the passage of animal protection laws. Join this fast-growing animal protection Political Action Committee (PAC): LOHV - LEAGUE OF HUMANE VOTERS!
