Busy week ahead for the fight against breed discrimination

Several areas will be discussing breed specific ordinances this week. If you are in or near one of these cities, please make every attempt to attend the upcoming council meeting to show unified opposition to breed specific legislation. (If you are on the FightBSL yahoo list, all these meetings are noted in our group calendar.)

Specific information for each area can be found in the alert link provided with each city.

Of important note, voters in Miami/Dade County have the opportunity to make history and vote out the 23-year-old pit bull ban on Tuesday. If you are a registered voter, PLEASE make your voice heard and vote “yes” on #500, and end breed discrimination in Miami/Dade County!
