Join NYCLASS by participating in the Global March for Lions- New York on Saturday, March 15th to protest trophy hunting and canned hunting of lions.
We will be in Washington Square Park from 11 am to 1pm by the statue of Garibaldi.
There will be posters and flyers available to educate the public about the horrors and issues of canned hunting and why it needs to be outlawed. We will also have petitions to sign to pressure the US Fish and Wildlife Service to list the African Lion as endangered. This important step will make it illegal to bring lion "trophies" back into the USA. As 55% of canned lion hunters come from North America, it is vital to shut down the economics of this.
John Di Leonardo, President, Long Island Orchestrating for Nature (LION)
Alexandra Panagiotou, University of Amherst & Siyafund

Join NYCLASS and the Humane Society of the United States for the Animal Lobbying 101 event. New York City's animal advocates will be meeting at Animal Haven, a local animal rescue, to learn and practice lobbying for animal protection laws.
Legislators are most motivated when their constituents take time to meet face-to-face. It's your chance to bring animal protection issues directly to your elected official.

New York's animal advocates will soon fill the halls of the Legislative Office Building in Albany for Humane Lobby Day 2014. You can be in on this exciting action, too! It's a one-day event where you can meet with your elected officials and their staff about animal protection issues in New York. Don't worry if you're new to lobbying or are unfamiliar with the issues. What's important is that you're there. We'll be there with you every step of the way.
We know legislators are most motivated when their constituents take time to meet face-to-face. It's your chance to show how much animals mean to you.
