Never Be Silent
It only takes a moment to change the life of an animal facing abuse and exploitation. Find your voice.
Every day, animals lose their lives in awful ways. They are mutilated, crammed into cages, and killed in painful ways for food. They are skinned alive for fashion. They are poisoned and blinded in experiments. They are chained, beaten, and forced to perform for entertainment. They suffer, and they cannot ask for the abuse to stop. That’s up to us. Never be silent in the face of abuse and exploitation. Find your voice—here and now.
Speak Up for Animals Who Are…
|Used for Food
When people ask you why you don’t eat animals, don’t just clam up and say that it is “a personal choice.” Instead, paint a vivid picture of cruelty to animals and explain how easy it is to go vegan!
|Used for Clothing
Never let a fur-wearer pass you by without letting him or her know that animals were beaten, drowned, or skinned alive for that fur.
|Used for Experimentation
Stand up for your right not to dissect in science class. Don’t let them say that sitting and watching another student cut up an innocent animal is an acceptable alternative—demand a cruelty-free alternate assignment.
|Used for Entertainment
The next time the circus comes to town, be sure to tell your family and friends that trainers use bullhooks and electric prods to force animals to perform and ask them not to go to the circus.
Always speak up if you see someone yelling at or yanking a dog on a leash. Ask the person to stop. Make sure to urge your friends and family to spay, neuter, and only adopt—never purchase from pet stores.
Your Voice Can Save Millions
From buying only products that haven’t been tested on animals to doing school reports on animal rights, helping animals is easy! Join the peta2 movement now by signing up for the peta2 Street Team. You’ll be provided with all you need to make a difference for animals, and you can earn free stuff just by taking action!
Below are just a few suggestions for ways that you can help animals:
- Take stickers and leaflets with you wherever you go and leave it everywhere—in your school lobby, on the bus, in waiting rooms, in dressing rooms, in bookstores, in coffee shops, and in grocery stores. E-Mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get some for free!
- Use your connections. Talk to any clubs you belong to about offering vegan meals at all meetings and events. If you belong to a church or a synagogue, ask about vegan options at dinners and services.
- Set up an information table during fairs, community events, and gatherings—wherever there are people to talk to about animal rights. Or pass out free peta2 literature before school or on a busy street corner. We’ll send you everything you need and give you tons of tips and talking points.
- Plan a protest. Organizing a protest is not scary or difficult and can be as simple as passing out leaflets and holding posters. Just e-mail email@example.com to see how to get started.
