We have some great news for animals today! Following a request from PETA, the District of Columbia Public Schools has voluntarily adopted a progressive dissection-choice policy. This means that students in Washington, D.C., can take a stand against chopping up dead animals at school and instead learn using modern computer software and other humane methods. How awesome is that?! Want even more good news? The nation’s capital is not alone! Many districts around the country as well as 15 states already have similar policies. Check if your state is one of them!
You don’t live in one of these states? No prob—just e-mail us at email@example.com. We’ll help you get a dissection-choice policy at your school and send you all the free material that you’ll need to get the rest of your classmates on board! Don’t forget that you can print your own petition sheets to get started right away!
P.S. On Friday, we’ll be launching an all-new, interactive site that’s going to make it even easier to cut out dissection and help animals at your school, so be sure to check back! Who else is super excited for this?
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
