The Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation is the only organization in the state of Missouri working full time to lobby in the state capitol on behalf of the animals. But it's not a solo endeavor - it takes all of us together to make a positive impact. There are several ways for you to contact your member of the state legislature to express your position on an issue and serve as a voice for the animals.
Phone calls are a quick, easy, and efficient way to contact your state senator or representative. Most of the time, you'll be speaking with a staff member who is taking notes and counting the number of constituents who are in favor or oppose a particular bill. The Alliance sends out periodic action alerts, and when applicable, we will provide a sample script for you.
Tips for calling:
Emails are another fast and simple way to contact your legislators. When the Alliance sends out an action alert urging contact, we will provide a sample email text for you to utilize.
Tips for emailing:
Would you like to meet other animal advocates and spend a day in the state capitol to show our legislators how committed you are to promoting better animal welfare laws?
Every spring, hundreds of supporters ranging from individuals to local and national animal welfare organizations gather in Jefferson City to ask our legislators to push for stronger animal-protection laws. On Humane Day, animal advocates like you are invited to learn and practice lobbying for relevant animal welfare bills in the Missouri state legislature.
Now more than ever, we need to pull together and show that there's strength in numbers. We WILL continue to fight for the animals!
