We wanted to give you a quick update on the important work we’re able to do together for farm animals.
As you’ve seen in your inbox, we continue to alert you to national farm animal protection issues, such as this petition to stop the terrible slaughter program known as HIMP.
What you may not know is that we also send state-level alerts whenever there are new opportunities to help farm animals or harmful legislation to take action against. From the attempt to undermine the recent ballot-initiative victory in Massachusetts to pushing for anti-confinement legislation in Rhode Island, the Compassionate Communities Campaign is monitoring every state for issues affecting you and farm animals.
Just one example:
On May 2, I wrote to Compassionate Communities members in Minnesota, asking for their help in stopping a proposal that would have given factory farms special rights.
On June 1, we learned that, due in part to the pressure we brought to bear, this harmful provision was stripped out of the final bill!
