Connecting with Candidates

In anticipation for local, state, and federal elections, HUMANE ACTION Pittsburgh sends out questionnaires to candidates to understand where they stand on certain animal issues. This year, our questionnaire has included questions about food justice, climate change, and the Pittsburgh Zoo. You can help by asking candidates running in your district to complete our questionnaire and by sharing completed surveys with other voters.
