Development of the Humane Party platform is—like all other HP tasks–driven by volunteers; that’s part of the nature of being an all-volunteer organization. As a result, the platform does not yet address certain issues. Specifically, until a volunteer with the requisite expertise, insight, and personal commitment with respect to a given issue steps up, that issue remains un-addressed or under-addressed in the HP platform.
What can be done to move the platform forward?
If the Humane Party platform doesn’t yet address an important issue and a position on that issue is not implied by other positions, the HP is awaiting a volunteer who’s ready, willing, and able to help develop the HP’s position on that issue. If you yourself are the right person to help handle this issue, the time to volunteer is now!
