Suggestions for Action Steps 

  • Sign up for PETA action alerts
  • Write a letter to the editor when you see uncritical praise for animal testing
  • Add your professional expertise by sharing your contact information with CCS (Aysha) or PETA (Alka or Shalin), so you can be added to our experts’ database. There are always opportunities to sign onto letters or to provide expert insights into specific experiments–and with your contact information, CCS/PETA can contact you when we are in need of your expertise.
