You’re invited to join the Texas Humane Legislation Network (THLN), the Houston Humane Society and the South Texas College of Law Animal Law Clinic for our first-ever Houston Animal Lobby Day!
The Texas legislature's 85th regular and special sessions have ended, and with the elections approaching this spring, state lawmakers are back in their home districts and focused on constituent matters. While many advocates "lobby" their legislators during session, many don't reach out in the interim years.
The off-session year is actually the most opportune time to truly make a lasting impression with state legislators, so that they remember when it counts. 2018 is also important to Texas as there is urgent animal protection legislation pending in Congress as we speak. Now is the time to advocate for humane legislation!
Register for our North Texas Lobby Day today! Advocates will be trained on effective interim lobbying and on current state and federal legislative issues. You will also have the opportunity to hear from a panel of local law enforcement on how you can help enforce laws once they're passed. Finally local state representatives will be stopping by to meet you and hear your concerns for a more humane Texas. Lunch is provided.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to network with other animal lovers, speak directly with legislators about passing strong laws for animals and learn how you can make a big difference for animals in 2018!
Thank you for being their voice and helping us #LegislateToChangeTheirFate!
