11 year-old Robin has been living up to her nickname “Wild Mustang Robin” ever since she started a petition on Change.org to stop wild horses from being sold for slaughter.
More than 113,000 people — including you — signed her petition in time for the Bureau of Land Management advisory board meeting in October. She teamed up with other horse advocates to deliver the signatures, and over a month later she won!
The U.S. Secretary of the Interior announced changes in the way wild horses are sold, including restrictions on the number of horses one person can buy and penalties if any of them wind up being sold for slaughter.
When Robin first started advocating for wild horses, she was going door-to-door in the summer heat and winter wind to gather support. But after she learned about Change.org and posted her petition online, she had signatures from all 50 states and 33 different countries in a matter of weeks.
Thanks for being a change-maker,
