Get involved with Students Opposing Speciesism!

What are they all about?

Students Opposing Speciesism (SOS) is a PETA-backed movement led by young people in cities all over the U.S. and Canada who want to take action to challenge the norm and help end speciesism. Our goals are to bring the social justice issue of animal rights to the forefront of people’s minds and create real change by influencing our peers. SOS is here to shape the future, and all young people are welcome to join in this effort. Oppression of any kind is wrong—no matter the species of the victim.  

What type of activism do they do?

We focus our attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We do this because we know that animals are not ours to use in any way.

 

SOS hubs get loud for animals with action kits that help students raise awareness and make change. Action for animals can be taken using video projections, light masks, banners, signs, presentations, and more—and each hub has a PETA adviser to help you make the biggest difference for animals in your area.
