Many American’s lead busy lives. Often there is a feeling that you need to be a “political expert” to express your views to your legislators. WHE go Live features an American citizen making her first call to a Senator, ever. You can do it too!
Right now your call should be very simple. In the FY2018 budget it proposes to sell wild horses to slaughter or kill them outright. You do not approve. Remember to say thank you.
The budget bill for Fiscal Year 2018 will go to a floor vote. That means all have a voice. (More below the video)
JOIN US! This piece goes into a bit of detail in preparing for a call. We will post a shorter version of simply “making a call” soon. This video is a conversation with a first time caller to a Senator.

Some info to help with your calls.
For those that want to learn more we are running a webinar this Saturday, June 10. (We will be running this webinar again. Date will be announced soon). We will cover how laws are made in Congress and how federal agencies are “regulatory agencies” that take that language into land use planning. That is where “management” of wild horses is created. You have a voice in the law making process and how regulations are used to create actions on the ground. Do you know how and where you can use your voice to be an effective advocate for the wild horses? You can sign up to participate here: WHEAdvocates@gmail.com
