Project R&R: Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories

GAPA up to 144 cosponsors

With Representative Pierluisi (D-PR) signing on this week, the Great Ape Protection Act (GAPA, H.R. 1326) is now at a total of 144 bipartisan cosponsors... only 31 away from our next target of 175! Gaining more and more momentum, the bill is on solid ground and with your help it will keep making its way to the President’s desk.

Help us SPRING to our 175 target...
make one important call.

1. Click here to see if your legislator has already signed on.
2. If your legislator is not signed on: Please call their DC office (click here to find their contact information). Let them know you are a constituent, what town you are from, and that you are asking them to please cosponsor the Great Ape Protection Act, H.R. 1326, which will end the use of chimpanzees in invasive research and retire all federally owned chimpanzees to sanctuary.
3. If they are a cosponsor already, please call and thank them – asking them to stay active in their support is as crucial to the bill’s success as its ever-growing list of cosponsors!
4. Then, ask at least ONE friend to do the same… then ask them to ask one of their friends to do the same... and so on...
