Join All Horse Advocates in D.C. September 29th! Thursday, September 17, 2009 6:00 AM
From Americans Against Horse Slaughter
On September 29Th, horse advocates will be headed to Washington D.C. in an effort to support The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act (HR503/S727) and The ROAM ACT (S1579/HR1018).
"Mustangs on Capitol Hill" will be gathering on the West Front Lawn of Capitol Hill on September 29th from 8:00AM to 4:00PM. People are encouraged to bring signs with illustrations and can also bring brochures and literature to hand out. For more information on this event, please log onto The Cloud Foundation blog here: http://thecloudfoundation.wordpress.com/
In addition to “Mustangs on Capitol Hill” on September 29Th, there’s an effort to keep a strong presence in D.C. through the end of this congressional session. We are encouraging our members and all horse advocates who can attend D.C. for a day or two, to do so between September 29th and the end of October. The Horse Defense Fund will be lobbying for both The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act and for The ROAM ACT during the week of Oct. 18th. This means we would need folks in D.C. for a day or two during the week of Oct. 4th, Oct. 11th and Oct. 25th.
Americans Against Horse Slaughter is honored to join in the efforts of these groups to get our legislation passed.. Details of specific AAHS activities will be out in the near future.
Please email us back to let us know if you will be attending “Mustangs On Capitol Hill” and/or can attend D.C. for a day or two during one of the weeks in October as this is a highly coordinated effort.
Thanks so much for all you do for the horses.
