HSUS state directors have a full schedule planned for the month of February. There are three areas of lobbying activity. Lobby Day 101 seminars cover lobbying skills and teach attendees how to influence a legislator. Grassroots Meetings are for discussing current HSUS legislative initiatives; legislators from the district are often invited to attend. Humane Lobby Days at state capitals where activists meet with legislators and distribute handouts are also on the agenda.
In February HSUS directors will be working in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Schedules for all these events can be found at the HSUS event calendar
