Some ideas on who you could write to
- Companies and businesses: these are very driven by what their consumers want and don’t want. You can make a statement with what you purchase and by using your voice. You could also write to companies who are kind to animals and let them know that they are awesome. Alternatively, you could write to companies who need to be reminded to be kind to animals and let them know you choose kind products over theirs.
- Newspapers: you can write a short letter to the editor on an issue you feel strongly about or in response to an article they publish on animals. Remember, there is usually a 150 word limit so keep it short!
- Politicians or even the Prime Minister: these are the people who make decisions about how our country is run. You can write to them about a practice you think should be made illegal or in support of their views on animal rights. Also, sending letters to parliament from within New Zealand is free!
Don’t know where to start?
You could write to Parliament about banning farrowing crates.
