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:
