Lisa Brown Headshot for voters guideHVW Endorses Lisa Brown for Congress, WA 5th District

The Humane Voters of Washington proudly endorses Lisa Brown in Washington’s 5th congressional district race.  Brown showed consistent leadership while she was in the Washington State Legislature to protect and conserve our wildlife, supported common sense regulation in our agriculture industry and supported legislation to benefit companion animals. Brown voted to make animal fighting a crime, to ban exotic pets, and to regulate puppy-mills. We know she will show the same leadership at the federal level, and we fully support Brown in her race for Congress.

Learn more about Lisa Brown at her campaign website.
