Visit Members of Congress at Home and Speak Up For Animals!
Your two U.S. senators and your U.S. representative will be home next month—don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
Every year, Congress takes the month of August off (pretty sweet job!). During the August recess, senators and representatives travel back to their home states and districts—after months spent in Washington, D.C., this is a time for them to reconnect with their constituents. This means you! Next month is going to offer great opportunities for you to meet with your congress members in-person, on your home turf, to advocate for animals.
Attending town hall meetings or scheduling time with your legislators in their state or district offices are great ways to advocate for animals. You can find out when town hall meetings are scheduled by contacting your legislators’ offices—before you go, you might want to read up on how to participate in town hall meetings). We also have some simple dos and don’ts for meeting with your legislators.
Speaking with your legislators face-to-face is the most effective thing you can do to promote animal welfare legislation! Look up your legislators’ information here and contact them today!
