Advocacy Tips for Building Safe and Humane Communities by Kim Wolf

When BSL is proposed in your municipality/province/city/state, emotions run high and it's tempting to get angry at politicians. Circulating hateful messages only hurts the dogs/owners, pushes people further from the facts and are counter-productive to your goal. 

We need to work with legislators, not against them, to find a solution. We all want safe communities and want substandard owners punished but that rule applies to ALL dog owners regardless of the breed or appearance of their dog. 

Here is a link to a short presentation on effective advocacy tips for challenging BSL.
