Summer Update: Lobbying in Raleigh

I attended the annual "Humane Lobbying Day" last month in Raleigh, where 75+ animal supporters gathered to be briefed on pending legislation and speak about animal issues with their representatives. Our contingent went into the gallery of the State Senate to be recognized and show lawmakers how many voters turned out on behalf of animal issues. I was very unprepared to see lawmakers wearing both lime green and pink seersucker suits.

If you passed through the Lower Rotunda yesterday between 12-1, you may have met Clovis in-person.
