Politicians too often dismiss this issue as "emotional," simply because the American public deeply cares; this seems contrary to democratic principles.
Special interest groups do not hold a monopoly over sound public policy. The American public has enough common sense to see that scientific data, ethics and fiscal responsibility all fall squarely on the side of America's wild horses.
Wild horse advocacy is considered one of the most efficient grassroots movements in the nation. This was confirmed in 2006 by several Members of Congress polled by the Institute for a Democratic Future, who called AWHPC to congratulate wild horse advocates on their grassroots efforts. We thank our coalition partners, who endorse our mission and join us in advancing our goals on behalf of America's wild horses and burros.
