Dear Student Activist,

As we verge upon the new Millennium, the time is ripe for ushering a new era of humanity and compassion for all of earth's creatures. Accordingly, two of this nation's premier animal protection organizations, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and The Fund for Animals, are expanding their Humane Activist Network, a grouping of politically active, animal protection/wildlife advocates from across the country.

Many of you have had an involvement with animal causes for years. Others may just be developing an awareness of humane issues. Either way, the Humane Activist Network is a way to become active in animal issues, to keep abreast of the most pressing issues in animal protection, and to work in conjunction with a network of similarly-oriented activists. By becoming a Campus Coordinator for the Humane Activist Network, you will be receiving a first-hand education in animal issues and political activism while creating invaluable connections with those already working in the animal protection field, veterans and college students alike.

As a Campus Coordinator, you will be joining our Humane Activist Network comprised of State Coordinators (at least one per state) and District Captains (one for each of the 435 Congressional Districts). As important animal protection legislation arises, we will provide you with detailed Fact Sheets and Action Alerts on each issue, complete with information clearly outlining the reasons a legislator should support or oppose an issue. During critical voting periods, the Network will be activated on these issues. We will also provide you with a special legislative *tool kit* - containing information such as lobbying and tabling tips, and volunteer recruitment. Additionally, you will receive HUMANElines, a free, weekly legislative update generated by The HSUS via email or fax. Your campus group can also get a free subscription to Humane Activist, The HSUS grassroots agenda publication.

~Become a Campus Coordinator Today~

For any one interested in pursuing a career in animal protection or the humane field, this is an excellent opportunity to become involved NOW. For any one simply interested in making a difference for animals, this is an excellent way to learn about the issues and challenges we face and become involved in a proactive, effective manner. You will also meet many key activists and form important alliances with organizations across your state and the nation. We hope that you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to become involved and take action for the animals today!

As a college student we know that you are busy with many projects, papers and deadlines, so we have designed the Campus Coordinator to be low impact on your life. While the commitment is not overwhelming, we believe the results are tremendous. We encourage you to reply to us by November 1, 1999 as we kick off the Campus Activist Network!!! Simply fill out the enclosed Campus Coordinator Information Sheet and return it to The HSUS. We'll get in touch with you right away. We look forward to hearing from you!
