Urgent Action Needed!
Don't Let Congress Undo State & Local Animal Laws!

Congress is attempting to subvert the rights of citizens by prohibiting states and localities from voting against activities concerning public health, safety, and morals!

A provision in the pending Farm Bill would overturn some of the most important animal welfare legislation passed in decades and prevent us from protecting and fighting for the rights of animals across the country!

If passed, this provision would nullify state bans on horse slaughter, bans on gestation crates in Florida and bans on both gestation and veal crates in Arizona and bans on foie gras in California and Chicago.

This is an outrageous power grab that would undermine the democratic process and deny citizens the right to pass state and local laws on issues of humane treatment or food safety.

We cannot let this happen!

TAKE ACTION NOW

Reach your federal legislatures by calling the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121

After you make your calls, please follow up with an email to further encourage your legislators to keep this dangerous provision out of the Farm Bill.

Visit www.house.gov and www.senate.gov to contact your legislators.
Sample text below for phone calls and emails.

Please tell your family and friends about this issue and ask them to help!

Contact your representatives now!

Sample Text Hello, my name is [your name] and I am a constituent from [your town]. I am calling today to urge [your representative's name] to oppose any effort to preempt state and local laws through the Section 123 of the pending Farm Bill. It would prevent states and localities from passing laws to protect animals from inhumane treatment to protect food safety. When citizens decide a practice is too cruel or dangerous to allow in their state, Congress has not business forcing them to allow it. Thank you.
