C.A.S.H. Mission Statement
The mission of C.A.S.H. - Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting - is to accomplish what
its name says in the shortest possible time.
Understanding that abolishing hunting entails
a process, a series of steps taken and not a single action that would effect our goal
overnight, a time frame cannot be established. We hope for building a succession of wins,
and if not wins immediately then at least a succession of stirrings of consciousness. We
hope to encourage those who are still silent to speak out, awakening community after
community about the heavy hand of state and federal wildlife management agencies. We hope
to alter whatever belief still exists that sport hunters are conservationists and
champions of the environment to a realization that they are destroyers of wildlife and
ecosystems in the narrow and broad sense. Where the natural feeling for wildlife doesn't
exist, we strive to engender among citizens outrage that their own rights are violated by
legal hunting and that their quality-of-life diminished.
Luke A. Dommer was the founder of the Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting. He was
its president from 1976 until his passing in August 1992. Mr. Dommer's research and
publications served as the foundation for the anti-hunting movement. He remains, through
this organization, an invaluable and dedicated warrior in the battle to save wild animals,
the environment, and general public from the silent economy that encourages and preys on
the passion of a few to kill the wildlife that belongs to all.
