Let Obama Know that You Support Basic Legal Protections for AnimalsPosted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on March 5th, 2010
We have entered the final round of voting for the Ideas for Change in America 2010 competition on Change.org and ALDF's Animal Bill of Rights is currently in the top 10! Help us keep up the momentum by voting today!
The top 10 most popular ideas will be announced at an event in Washington, D.C. later in March and presented to relevant officials in the Obama Administration. Let Obama know that you support basic legal protections for animals by voting for the Animal Bill of Rights on Change.org!
In America, animals are still considered "property" according to the law - in most cases, no different than a table or chair. Through the Animal Bill of Rights, the Animal Legal Defense Fund is working to show Congress a groundswell of support for legislation that protects animals and recognizes that, like all sentient beings, animals are entitled to basic legal rights in our society.
The final round of voting ends on March 12 so please vote today.
