Tuesday 5/17: Show Up for the Animals at HSUS Humane Lobby Day

The Humane Society’s annual Humane Lobby Day in Michigan is a fun and interesting event. This is a great opportunity to tell your state legislators about issues affecting Michigan’s animals such as what changes are needed to protect animals from puppy mills and gas chamber euthanasia. Don’t be worried if you have never participated in this sort of event before, as there will be plenty of people with lobbying experience to help out.

If you need a ride or would like to offer a ride to the event, please use the comments section on our Meetup site to organize carpools.

Registration is $8 and that covers materials and a vegan boxed lunch. Last day to register is May 13.

***Attendees must register on the Humane Society website***

When: Tuesday, May 17, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Anderson House Office Building, Mackinac Room
124 North Capitol Ave., Lansing, MI 48909
Cost: $8

We urge all Vegan Kalamazoo members to attend–and we especially urge you to attend if you’ve never attended a vegan event before. There is no substitute for being in a big room filled with other vegans, with everyone having a good time and eating great food and offering great support. It’s a vision of the future, when the world will be more vegan; and also a chance to see our movement’s inspirational leaders live. Don’t miss it!

Vegan Kalamazoo will be setting up carpools. Please email if you can use, or offer, a ride.
