Spreading the word is central to all RPA activities, because few people today, no matter how well educated, know what kind of animal we are, the misery in animal abuse, or the roots of human misery in animal abuse, or the concepts that lead to rights of new groups of persons. In a nutshell, here is what I recommend:
~Read RPA's website – www.RPAforAll.org. It not only recommends many activities – some easy, some difficult – but frames them in the understanding of rights that we need to promote equal rights of all animals.
~Distribute Animal Abuse: The Whole Story in libraries and among friends and family members.
~Organize an RPA presentation in your area or at your home.
~Explain the needed policy change to your officials and university executives as outlined at RPA's website. Write again whether you receive a reply or not. We must create a new agenda – current ones grossly miss the mark. Don't be discouraged or intimidated.
~Avoid wasting time with social media. There is a reason they are called social and not political. No matter how many "facebook friends" we have, interacting online doesn't educate or lead in the necessary way.
