Come to a fun, informative, motivational meeting to learn how you can be part of an historic campaign to outlaw some of the cruelest practices on factory farms!
Sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, Californians for Humane Farms has launched a ballot campaign to require that animals on farms are given enough room to be able to lie down, turn around, stand up, and fully extend their limbs or wings. This sounds so moderate, but it would be an enormous victory for the chickens, pigs, and calves who are kept in such miserable conditions on factory farms.
Over 2000 volunteers all over the state are gathering signatures for this campaign, and we have just 3 more months to gather over 500,000 signatures! We need everyone who cares about animals to get involved in this initiative, to gather signatures from friends and family, to gather signatures from the general public, to research events, make phone calls, increase publicity, and take other actions to support this campaign.
Join us to learn more about the campaign, to meet other volunteers who care about this, to get materials, and to be inspired to make a difference!
