This week we are going to address multiple factors in todays advocacy.

“If you are advocating for a sick child you do not yell at the doctor that the disease does not exist. You learn everything you can about the disease and every treatment option and then engage a process to cure your child. That is advocacy.”

Advocating for wild horses and burros requires an engagement in public lands policy. It requires an understanding of a “bigger picture,” not simply a regurgitation of ideals. It is not a “three paragraph” read.

The pages are intentionally created without pictures. It is very hard to get people that have become addicted to screaming memes and reacting to photographs to read. You must click the links to read.

The Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act, NEPA and the National Academy of Sciences report begin this discussion. The first piece can be accessed here, click the link to read: https://wildhorseeducation.org/educate-yourself-part-1-deconstruction/

We will link the new pages each day to this standing page.

“An educated advocacy is more important than ever.”

We need “hard core” advocates, now. Will you take the time to learn how to become one?
