Editor's note: The League of Women Voter's of Southwest Missouri attempted to arrange an interview with the supporters of the ban, but did not hear back by deadline.

This week on Making Democracy Work, host Crystal Brigman Mahaney,  talks with Carrie Galvan—Certified Behavior Consultant Canine-- member of Citizens Against BSL, and member of former Springfield Animal IssuesTask Force.

Today’s discussion explores concerns, arguments and alternatives  related to breed specific legislation. Springfield’s proposed breed ban legislation, otherwise known as Question 1, will be put to voters next week on the August 7th ballot.
