The ASPCA works hard to ensure that there are good laws on the books to protect animals across the country. But we can’t do it without the grassroots advocacy of our dedicated ASPCA supporters!
The most powerful way for animal advocates to help reshape our laws is through lobbying their legislators directly. We help you do that by hosting Lobby Days, where we invite passionate citizens like you to be trained by our advocacy experts and make your voices heard at your state Capitol.
So far in 2013, we have been joined by over 2,000 incredible advocates at 29 state Lobby Days. These citizen lobbyists include people from all backgrounds and all levels of advocacy experience, and collectively they made an enormous impact on animal protection, helping to pass bills into law in Maryland (establishing a first-of-its-kind statewide spay/neuter program), Texas (a gas chamber ban), New York (increased penalties for killing a police animal) and New Jersey (a ban on inhumane gestation crates).
And we’re not done yet—our 30th Lobby Day of the year is in Sacramento, CA, and kicks off in less than two weeks! If you’re a Californian, register to join us!
