Farm animals in Kentucky need your help. Last year, thanks to the efforts of compassionate Americans all over the country, anti-whistleblower bills were defeated in all 11 states where they were introduced. But now, the industry is back with a vengeance. Just this week, industrial farming interests in Frankfort inserted an ag-gag provision into an otherwise positive bill, House Bill 222. Now, the bill would turn undercover investigators working on behalf of animals into criminals! Whistleblowers are heroes, not criminals.Please make a brief, polite phone call to your state legislators (find phone numbers here) right now and urge them to remove the ag-gag provision from HB 222. You can simply say, “Hello, my name is XXXXXX, and I live in your district. I oppose the ag-gag provision in HB 222, and I hope you will work to remove it. I don’t believe that undercover investigations of factory farms should be illegal, and I want to know how Representative/Senator XXXXX is going to vote on this bill.” Be sure to leave your name and phone number. If the receptionist can’t tell you how your legislator is going to vote, please ask for a call back.After you call, please submit this form to automatically send a follow-up message. Feel free to customize this letter in your own words — and be sure to ask for a reply.
And, please forward this message to all your friends and family, and post it on your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
