Student Choice in Your State: A Lobbying Guide

Many students who believe it’s wrong to dissect or experiment on animals are often afraid to speak up about such assignments—let alone refuse to do them—for fear that they’ll get in trouble or receive a failing grade. “Student Choice in Your State,” a brochure published by The Humane Society of the United States, gives advice on lobbying for legislation that permits those students to learn about biology without harming or killing animals.

“Student Choice” lists several reasons for the creation of such laws, including a couple of unexpected ones—for example, the brochure cites studies and surveys revealing that teachers themselves support student choice.

Potential activists can learn about the state legislative process, read a step-by-step guide on getting student choice laws passed, and find out how to gather support along the way. They will also find detailed tips on presenting testimony at a hearing.

To order “Student Choice,” e-mail or call 301-721-6439.
