Do you hate wasteful government spending? Do you hate cruelty to puppies and kittens? If you answered yes, read on: this might be your dream career opportunity. We’re looking for a Campaign Coordinator to help us build the future, today.
Why You Want This Opportunity: White Coat Waste Project (WCW) is a bipartisan organization supported by 400,000+ liberty-lovers and animal-lovers opposed to the government’s wasteful spending on animal experiments. National Review says it’s a “refreshing consensus-building argument.” The Richmond Times-Dispatch says WCW’s “message has infiltrated the federal government.” Here’s why:
- De-funded the Dept. of Veterans Affairs dog labs: 1st time in American history Congress defunded dog testing at an entire federal agency.
- Ended FDA’s baby monkey nicotine addiction experiments and compelled FDA to establish its first-ever Animal Welfare Council.
- Passed the first-ever law to cut state tax funding of maximum pain cat and dog labs
- Made headline news over 586x times in 18 months, more than any other animal testing origination, including front cover investigations in USA Today, New York Times, Fox News, and many more.
- Secured the first-ever federal audits of animal testing spending in American history
