Humane Society Legislative Fund Fundraiser

More amo for all of you who enjoy making fun of my internship....I'll have you know that everyone had a fantastic time, and I was complimented more than once on my outfit. More interestingly, HSLF (Humane Society Legislative Fund) is our PAC (political action committee) which only just recieved this recognition, which is very exciting due to its new set of rules regarding contributions in elections and to elected officials. The Hill Office has been really excited about this new development, and has i believe issued its first endorsements for the races in both NY and NJ, although I'm not sure if they've gone public just yet!

HSLF and the grassroots team for HSUS (Humane Society of the US) engage in large amounts of grassroots lobbying and even employ thier own version of lobbyists, so the new PAC status is very exciting for everyone involved. If anyone else is interested in animal rights, this links to the HSLF homepage/President of the Fund Mike Markarian's blog...
