We are forming Democrats for the Protection of Animals as a chartered club within the LA County Democratic Party. We plan to develop positions on animal issues that may be adopted by lawmakers. We may choose to endorse and support political candidates that we feel will be supportive of our positions.
The club is the result of discussions we have had over several years and the perception by many that LA county needs an organization to provide a voice on animal issues for its citizens. In the absence of such an organization, lawmakers often turn to national organizations for information and guidance. The positions of national organizations do not always correspond to the positions of LA County residents.
