The week of February 12, 2024
 

In-person Event: Feb. 14, 2024

Lawyers Mall
State Circle
Annapolis, MD 21401
 

9:30 am - 11:30 am
 

Join us in Maryland along with fellow advocates from all over the state to participate in our Week of Action for Animals! This week will include an in-person event on Feb 14, as well as ways you can support the Humane Agenda by contacting your legislators and sharing actions on social media. It's your chance to show lawmakers that animal protection legislation is a priority to Marylanders.

If you are able, please plan to stay for the hearing on legislation to end cruel confinement for egg-laying hens (HB357) and prohibit the use of wild animals in travelling acts (HB379). The hearing will be in the House Environment and Transportation Committee starting at 1pm.

Other Important Information

  • Attendees will hear from bill sponsors, HSUS staff, and coalition partners about the bills (why they matter and what their status is during the session). You will have an opportunity to rally for these reforms as legislators walk past
