Founded in 2001, LOHV-NYC has become the political arm of the local animal protection movement and mobilizes public concern for animals through the democratic political process by building support amongst citizens, activists, political parties, candidates and elected representatives all over the city. Recognizing that animal protection is a political issue as well as a moral issue, they campaign for the election of humane candidates to public office. With the goal of electing humane-minded candidates to the city and state legislatures, they were the first and still are the only registered political action committee (PAC) focused on humane issues in the city.<br><br><br><br>

John has been quoted and/or his work has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, the New York Press, SATYA magazine and El Diario, among others.<br><br><br><br>
