Kathleen Conroy from Seattle, Wash., heads out to speak to her representatives at the state capitol during Humane Lobby Day in Olympia, Washington on January 28, 2013. Humane Lobby Day was organized by the ASPCA, HSUS, and Wolf Haven International to educate animal advocates "learn and practice lobbying for animal protection laws at the state level". "It is a full-day event including a lobbying workshop and an overview of relevant bills in your state legislature. Appointments are made for you with your state legislators so that you can meet with them (or their staff) face to face and ask for animal-friendly votes" according to the HSUS website.
