Responsible Policies for Animals (RPA) promotes justice for all animals – including human beings – to reduce suffering, loss, deprivation, and early death so that all may lead a fulfilling life and life may continue as it has been experienced for hundreds of millions of years.
RPA works to establish basic rights of all animals because without rights there is no justice and without justice no fulfillment, just ever more suffering, death, and extinction.
RPA promotes rights the way they originally came to exist. RPA's campaigns, websites, literature, lectures, interviews, exhibits, articles, and letters address pervasive injustice against nonhuman animals, showing how it harms human beings and how to end it.
No other organization does what RPA does. Learn here. Tell us what else you would like to know. Join us. Work with us. The future of living beings is in the balance. Welcome to RPA.

ARZone's Looking Back, Moving Forward podcast asked 35 animal advocates, including RPA executive director David Cantor, to briefly describe what they did on behalf of nonhuman animals in 2012 and what they intend to do in 2013.
In this full-length interview with ARZone, David Cantor explains key differences between rights advocacy and other advocacy, explaining why only establishing rights of all animals can create the needed change.
Added David Cantor's Terre Haute letter-to-editor about "animal agriculture" and the "animal science" problem, and his op-ed in The Chestnut Hill Local about the Philadelphia deer kill. See In the News.
