Conference Tracks

Lobby Day
Monday, June 20
Capitol Hill
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with your federal lawmakers and/or their staffs to let them know how important animal issues are to you.  We rarely get the chance to walk the halls of Congress and meet our elected officials, so don’t miss this opportunity. We will be with you every step of the way and provide you with everything you need to be effective. Plus, Lobby Day is a fun and easy way to instantly become a citizen lobbyist. The skills you will learn can later be applied at your local or state level.  We hope to see you all there. The animals need every available humane advocate working on the front lines for humane legislation, and this is a perfect opportunity to do just that!

How it works:
•  During the registration process on the agenda page, indicate you will attend Lobby Day.
•  Our lobbyists will make an appointment for you with your legislators and/or their staffs.
•  Attend the mandatory Lobby Day training session on Sunday, June 19 at 5:00pm.
•  On Monday, join us on Capitol Hill and put your new skills into practice by discussing important animal protection legislation during your appointment. We will all go to the Capitol together, and our experts will be available to answer any last-minute questions.
•  You will go to your appointments with The HSUS state director and other attendees from your state who are also attending the conference. This is a great way to meet new friends and advocates from home.
