Factory farm lobbyists are hard at work, pushing your state legislature to provide special protection for factory farms that pollute Minnesota’s land, water, and air—and that harm Minnesotans. We need your help to stop them!As you know, animal waste from industrial farms can destroy topsoil, pollute water, and make people sick. But instead of ensuring that their industrial farms don’t harm Minnesota citizens and the environment, the industrial meat industry is pushing legislation that would protect factory farmers from liability. Please call your state senator and representative right now. You can find their contact information here — be sure you’re calling your state legislators rather than your federal legislators.You can simply say, “Hello, my name is XXXXXX, and I live in your district. I oppose SF 482/HF 582, which provides special and undeserved legal protection for polluting industrial farms, and I hope Rep./Sen. XXXXX will oppose it, too. I would like to know how he/she will be voting, please.” Please be sure to leave your name and phone number, and if the receptionist cannot tell you how your legislator plans to vote, please ask for a call back.After you call, please submit this form.
And, please forward this message to all your friends and family, and post it on your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
