Tell the U.S. Government: No Monkey Stockpile

Members of the animal research community intend to ask President Biden to create a “stockpile” of nonhuman primates for use in research. Join NAVS in opposing this short-sighted and unnecessary plan. Ask that the Biden administration instead focus our nation’s resources on the development of non-animal testing alternatives that will better model human biology and better predict human response.

Capitol Building

Federal issues tend to get a great deal of attention, but what happens at the state level is just as important—perhaps even more so. By advocating on behalf of statewide issues, you can have an immediate, local effect on animals and make a positive difference directly in your community.

In many cases, success of these statewide issues can even help lead to even bigger and better things. Issues that gain traction and passage at the state level often help spur national progress, since federal legislators can point to the successes of laws in their states to make the case for federal versions of those laws.

State Level Actions

State actions are intended for residents of that state. Email letters will be sent to your own representatives on Capitol Hill or to elected officials in your state. If you live in one of the states listed below, TAKE ACTION today on one (or more) of these important issues.
