Bank of America recently announced another partnership with the Humane Society of the United States after releasing a new HSUS-themed credit card. This new credit card provides the radical animal rights organization with $60 for every new account opened and an additional 25 cents for every $100 spent. (The bank last partnered with HSUS in 2009.) This week, the Animal Agriculture Alliance wrote to Bank of America's President Brian Moynihan to request that the bank stop funding animal rights organizations such as HSUS that seek to eliminate animal agriculture.
The Alliance, a Bank of America customer, wrote to Mr. Moynihan on June 18 and explained it would be forced to reconsider its relationship with Bank of America if it continued to support groups that unfairly attack the way of life of America's farmers and ranchers. The Alliance has not yet received a response.
As a valued member and vital stakeholder in the agriculture industry, the Alliance encourages you to to write to your own local Bank of America and share the true agenda of animal rights extremists. Ask them to drop their support for HSUS. Remind them that local animal shelters (and not HSUS, which has a $100 million budget and doesn't operate a single animal shelter for cats and dogs) are most in need of financial support. Please review the Alliance's sample letter below.
Make no mistake – the ultimate goal of groups such as HSUS is to put a stop to America’s animal agriculture industry, and the safe, abundant, and affordable products it provides. This goal does not reflect the values of most Americans. The Alliance works to communicate the important role of animal agriculture and ensure misleading information is corrected.
