Advocate Effectively

January 18, 2024

Make an Impact! Advocate for Animals in Need.

When advocating, be sure to be effective:

  • Be prepared
  • Be honest and respectful
  • State the problem and share the facts
  • Make the ask, i.e.: please sponsor an animal protection bill
  • Listen to what the elected official and/or their staff say about the issue
  • Make a plan for follow up

To understand how a bill becomes a law in New Jersey, check out the interactive page at our New Jersey State Legislature website:
