The Humane Party does not provide email addresses (e.g., “firstname.lastname@example.org”) for several reasons. Two main reasons are:
- cost: the more financial overhead the HP has, the more the HP will need to seek financial contributions
- volunteers: the more administrative overhead the HP has, the more thinly the HP’s limited volunteer time will be spread
This issue is one where the HP’s unique organizational nature and the vulnerability of the constituents the HP represents require an approach that may differ from that of other organizations.
