10 Ways to Score a More Powerful Voice for Animals
Follow Humane Voters of WA! Starting off with a shameless plug, but seriously, the political landscape in Washington shifts so rapidly that the best way to keep in touch on these issues is to make sure you follow Humane Voters of WA on Facebook and take action at the right moment.
Make an appointment to meet with your representatives. Keeping them informed about animal protection issues takes persistence and growing a relationship with your representatives can make a difference between a yes vote or a no vote when it comes time to vote.
Attend a town hall, candidate forum, or stop by the tent of a candidate at a community event. Making sure that legislators and candidates hear about animal issues when they are in the community reinforces that their vote against cruelty is important to their constituency. Plus, having other witnesses to hear a pledge of support never hurts either.
Look for action alerts on our Facebook page – and take action!
Share your story. How did you get interested in animal protection? Consider writing a brief history of why you care and bring it with you to your next legislative meeting or town hall and deliver it to your legislators.
Say thank you – over and over again we hear the power of gratitude, and over and over its power is reaffirmed! Take any excuse to thank someone for doing something good for animals and you will make it much more likely they will continue to do good.
Talk about animal protection issues. We at Humane Voters of WA are widely known for our work on animals, so we talk about it wherever we go! We periodically post legislative updates on our Facebook page.
