Your Senators and Representatives are back in their home districts for the next two weeks for Easter Recess.
This is a great time to call their district offices and thank them for maintaining protections for wild horses and burros in the 2018 Omnibus spending bill, which passed last week.
Remember, the Fiscal Year 2019 Appropriations process is already under way, and the Interior Department is once again doubling down on its plan to slaughter our nation's iconic mustangs and burros.
We have a major battle on our hands again, and we can lay a strong foundation for the fight ahead expressing our gratitude now to Congress for listening to the will of the people and protecting our wild horses and burros.
What You Can Do
1. Find the district office for your Representative and Senators and give them a call!
Here's what you need to say: "I'm calling to let Senator/Rep [name] know how much I appreciate Congress' decision to maintain long-standing protections for wild horses and burros from killing and slaughter. Please ask Senator/Rep to ensure that these same protections are carried forward in 2019 spending legislation. Thank you."
2. Follow up with an email.
Thank you so much for taking action for wild horses and burros,
The AWHC Team
