Urge Congress to Support Great Ape Protection
Help protect chimpanzees and other great apes now by asking your congressional representatives to cosponsor and support the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (H.R. 1513/S. 810) Passage of this legislation would permanently end the use of chimpanzees—and all other great apes—in invasive experiments and retire more than 500 federally owned chimpanzees to sanctuaries.

Tell the U.S. Government to Get Out of the Horse Slaughter Business…Once and For All
ACTION
A BILL entitled the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 (S. 1176) was introduced in the United States Senate, Thursday, June 9, 2011, by Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) with 14 originating co-sponsors.
S. 1176 makes it illegal to transport horses to slaughter for human consumption.
In separate articles published in The Hill days before S. 1176 was introduced, both Rep. Raúl Grijalva and Rep. Jim Moran threw down the gauntlet regarding horse slaughter.
Grijalva stated that horse slaughter has been off the Washington radar too long, and Moran that the United States should get out of the horse meat business.
If successful, the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 will do just that.
Please contact your two U.S. Senators and respectfully urge them to co-sponsor and vote yes for S. 1176, the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011.
