In what appears to be an attempt to try to get around Don’t Expand UW Primate Testing’s lawsuit against the University of Washington Board of Regents for a secret decision to approve a new Animal Research and Care Facility, the Regents’ agenda for their Regular Meeting this week includes: “Approve Construction of the ARCF Project at the Preferred Site Underneath Portage Bay Vista.”

Leading up to the Regents’ last vote on the animal lab, people called and emailed them at the Regent phone number and email address. But since that time, we have learned that the Regents did not get those messages. Rather than take the time to learn about people’s concerns about the lab, the Regents let their office just pass the messages over to the UW’s animal research department to send their biased replies to people.

So leading up to the Regents’ vote on the new lab this week, we’re going to make sure that they hear from the concerned public.

Please call and email them at their direct phone numbers and email addresses to tell them that they need to do their jobs and actually learn about all the reasons to NOT approve construction of a new animal research facility, and ask them to vote NO on building the new facility. 

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
