What better, more positive and generally all-around helpful to the world at large organization is there than the Humane Society? And who have they endorsed in the primary in Washington's 1st congressional district? Why, Darcy Burner, of course. Her campaign sends this announcement:
(Redmond, WA) – On Friday, the Humane Society Legislative Fund endorsed Darcy Burner in the race for Washington’s First Congressional District, joining a long list of organizations that have added their support to the more than 9,500 grassroots supporters who have contributed to Burner’s campaign.

“We are grateful for Darcy’s support of humane issues and for her work to create a more humane society,” said Executive Director Sara Amundson.

Goal Thermometer
The Humane Society Legislative Fund is a social welfare organization which works to pass animal protection laws at the state and federal level, to educate the public about animal protection issues, and to support humane candidates for office.  They base their endorsements solely on a candidate’s positions and actions on animal welfare issues, regardless of party affiliation.
Working to create a more humane society is pretty much what Darcy is all about, and not just on issues related to our non-human friends. Her commitment to equality, to a better and more just society, isn't just lip-service, it's her work. This recognition from the Humane Society is just a nice little acknowledgement of her efforts.

So for all your four-legged friends, please, click here to give $3 to Darcy Burner.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
