ATTENTION, UK STUDENTS: BECOME A PETA CAMPUS REP TODAY!
Applications Accepted Now for Exciting New Vegan Programme
London – Because more students in the UK are going vegan now than ever before, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is launching an exciting, first-of-its-kind Campus Rep Programme to help passionate young animal activists speak up for animals, organise fun and effective on-campus outreach events, and inform their peers about important animal rights issues. Applications for the positions are open until 20 August.
PETA’s Campus Reps will receive a stipend to support their on-campus advocacy efforts and can look forward to doing the following:
- Organising demonstrations, events, and on-campus campaigns
- Receiving tips and advice on enhancing their activism skills as well as free materials about animal rights issues.
- Becoming part of a network of like-minded animal advocates
“Students in the UK are going vegan in huge numbers, and PETA looks forward to mentoring some of these driven, compassionate individuals through its new Campus Rep Programme,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “We encourage every young person who cares about animals and is interested in honing his or her activism skills and making a difference in the world to apply for this opportunity.”
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that vegans are, on average, fitter and trimmer than their meat-eating counterparts and also have significantly lower carbon footprints, as animal agriculture is a major producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change. Every person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals a year daily suffering and a violent, terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries.
