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
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.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
