PCRM’s 2021 Virtual Hill Week for Nonanimal Science

Wednesday, Nov. 3 - Friday, Nov. 5, 2021

PCRM’s 2021 Virtual Hill Week for Nonanimal Science

Make your voice heard! 
Join the Physicians Committee staff and fellow advocates for virtual Capitol Hill Week on Nov. 3-5, 2021 to lobby for nonanimal science. 

What is a Hill Day/Hill Week? 

Hill Day/Hill Week (or Lobby Day or Advocacy Day) is an event that typically occurs on Capitol Hill and allows people to speak directly with their members of Congress on issues of importance to them and the organizing group. Hill Days/Hill Weeks are a powerful way for constituents to advocate for a cause they believe in and for legislators to hear from the people they represent. 

2021 Virtual Hill Week

Rather than a day on the Hill, our virtual event will take place for a few hours over multiple days. Please join us and help influence your federal legislators! As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to participate in virtual meetings with your members of Congress or their staff to ask them to support nonanimal science. Physicians Committee staff will equip you with everything you need for successful meetings.  

Nonanimal research and testing that utilizes human biology is critical to improving scientific research and therapeutic development while saving animals from horrific experiments. Congress plays an important role in overseeing, funding, and setting the agenda of federal research and testing. PCRM’s Virtual Hill Week is your chance to speak with your federal representatives about the importance of supporting nonanimal research and testing and work that reduces and replaces animal experiments.  

Please join us and help make a difference for humans and animals.
