We are creating a world where animals are no longer subject to painful experiments under the falsity that it is for the greater good of mankind.
We work hard to achieve this by advocating for scientifically viable, humane research, testing and teaching methods that reliably benefit animals, people and science and do not harm humans and other animals; lobbying for legislative and systemic changes; educating to dismantle misconceptions around the validity of the animal model and educating for a societal shift towards cruelty-free lifestyles and attitudes. Members help power this work!
