“2020 may not have been a walk in the park, but it gave people food for thought about humans’ relationship with the rest of the animal kingdom,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA looks forward to a new year that’s trending positive, making ‘kindness to all’ the watchwords for 2021.”

PETA—whose motto reads, “Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. More information about our work to help animals is available at PETA.org and on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.
