Before the summer ends


The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Thank you for being a part of our #NoRecessForHorses Summer of Action. Our goal has been to keep the pressure every day on legislators while they’re back home to make it clear: the American people will not stand for the mass slaughter of America’s wild horses. Our own polling shows 80% of Americans are with us.

Have you spoken to your Representative yet? If not, its not too late to be heard. Here’s what you can do:

1) Find out if your member is holding a town hall:

If they are, please attend and ask them if they are committed to stoping any attempts towards the slaughter, euthanasia, or destruction of healthy wild horses. If they answer, make sure to let us know:

2) No town hall? Call your member’s district (not Washington D.C.) office and ask them if you can schedule a meeting with your congressperson or legislative aide. You can find the number for your congressperson here. And you can look up talking points here.

3) In addition to meeting in-person, make sure to keep calling and emailing.You can use our tool here to get in touch now.

If you don’t know where your member stands on this issue, now’s the time to find out. And if they’re supporting slaughter, now is the time to change their mind! Votes are expected in September that may decide the fate of American wild horses. So keep up the pressure! #NoHorseSlaughter #NoRecessForHorses!

Thank you!
