“The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.”
- Jane Goodal
We encourage you to use our TAKE ACTION pages to take political and social action and it is easy to do so. However, there is a lot more that you can do as well. Below is a list of some ideas on how you can make a difference.
These ideas range dramatically and what you are ready to do will depend on your personality, internal and external resources, level of awareness, and willingness. Start with the smallest step that feels right to you. Some things suggested may seem out of the question at this moment in your life. Just take the step(s) that are acceptable to you at this time. Change happens one step at a time. Sometimes only thinking about a step can help. I would never have thought that I would be doing some things that now feel totally normal and right to me. Anything that you do to help animals and the environment makes a difference. Anything. So just do it!
We are open to ideas so please write in and tell us more and, if suitable, we will add them to the list. Remember, every behavior makes a difference. Big changes in the world have happened by people taking small, firm steps and helping others to do the same. A lot can happen just by power of example, conversation, how and where you spend your time and money, any socially active action, and for whom and what you vote. Some basic and varied suggestions are as below.
