Help end HF 589 (the Ag-Gag bill in Iowa)

Olivia Brown has created a petition hoping to end HF 589 (the Ag-Gag bill in Iowa). This bill makes it practically impossible to catch animal abusers.

Iowa House File 589 amends Iowa Code 717A, which relates to agricultural production including criminal penalties for animal facilities. The most troubling part of the bill pertains to the prohibition of producing, possessing, and/or distributing undercover video and/or audio recordings of activities within an animal facility.

Please take a moment and sign the petition.
