San Francisco, CA, May 3rd 2016 – Rats have suffered throughout history because of their bad reputation. Excluded from the Animal Welfare Act (1966), the movement to win more protections for them has been hampered by fear and misunderstanding perpetuated by urban legends, movies, and other negative messaging. The nonprofit Art for Animals’ Sake (AFAS) is attempting to change the conversation through an innovative traveling art exhibit, The Rattie Uprising.

PORTLAND, Ore., May 2, 2016 — An EPA analysis relying heavily on unpublished, industry funded studies has determined that glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup, is “not likely to be carcinogenic to humans.” The EPA determination, released to the public on Friday, stands in sharp contrast to a finding last year by the World Health Organization’s cancer-research arm that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen.
