Humane Lobby Day is a day when animal lovers from all walks of life, and from all across the state, meet at the Capitol to advocate for animals. No experience is necessary, just a passion for protecting animals from harm. At Humane Lobby Day, we will teach you all you need to know to effectively engage with lawmakers on the most important animal-related bills under consideration by the Legislature. Most of all, Humane Lobby Day is fun! After a full day of getting briefed on bills, special guest speakers, meeting with legislators and networking with like-minded Texans, you’ll be empowered to take that knowledge back to your community – and you will know you made a difference for animals!
