The Animal Welfare Institute's Congressional Directory for the 113th US Congress is now available. This small, color booklet provides information on how to contact every Member of Congress, as well as House and Senate committees and relevant government officials. It is a valuable and convenient tool to have when helping us contact Members of Congress on important animal protection measures.
Among AWI’s legislative priorities for the 113th Congress: enacting a ban on the slaughter of American horses here and abroad, defending the right of wild horses to live free from harassment on public lands, improving government oversight of USDA’s Wildlife Services Program and reducing the program’s reliance on brutal animal control methods, and increasing funding for research and action to stop the devastation of white-nose syndrome on American bat populations.
