Walk your talk at the Colorado statehouse

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the sponsored Lobby Day in Denver on Tuesday February 22, 2011. Nearly 200 people (and a few animals) joined the conversation, “walking their talk" as individuals spoke up for animals at the Colorado statehouse. Holly Tarry (HSUS) and Jill Buckley (ASPCA), both animal lobbyists, gave attendees the tools, information, and direction to spread the word amongst Colorado lawmakers. It could not have been easier.

If you were not there you can still help, it is not too late. Send Holly Tarry a note; she is the state director for the Humane Society – Colorado. Tell her you want to help, find her email address here.

The job of being a citizen lobbyist is to talk to your lawmakers and encourage each of them to join the Colorado Lawmakers Animal Protection Caucus established by Representative Beth McCann and Senator Lucia Guzman. Become a resource to your representatives, help them learn about animal cruelty and insure they receive reliable animal protection information. The challenge is to provide an organized, efficient medium for protecting animals as Colorado faces new economic priorities.

Bottom line, educate yourself on the issues. Be willing to show up and talk to your state representatives.
