Other PCRM Volunteer Opportunities
1. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper.
See a newspaper or magazine article about nutrition or ethics in research that you’d like to respond to? Send a letter to the editor—and send us a copy if you get published! Use our letter writing tips to get started.
2. Air a PCRM video on public access television or college television.
Become a member of your local public access television station and air PCRM’s educational videos or public service announcements. Each station has specific requirements for this process, so contact your local station for information on how to become a member, annual membership fees, programming format, timeslots, and submitting videos. You can order PCRM videos on DVD or VHS on our marketplace.

If you’re a college student and your college or university has its own television station, you can ask the station to air a PCRM video. Each school is different, so contact your college television station for information on how to submit videos. You’ll need to find out what formats are accepted and how to get your video approved.
