BACKGROUND | SOURCE UNITED POULTRY CONCERNS

National Public Radio is excellently positioned to encourage compassionate holiday dining and respectful attitudes toward turkeys if its corporate staff hears from listeners. In addition to contacting NPR’s President & CEO Gary E. Knell, please send an email to your local NPR station with your request for compassionate holiday programming. Click on the below link to send your message, and if you need to find the call letters for your local NPR station, click where it says “Find a Station” for the information you need. You can likely send an email directly to Info@[call letters].org. Below is a sample letter. Most important is for NPR’s corporate staff and member stations to hear from us.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear NPR,

As a dedicated listener to your engaging and informative programs, I am writing respectfully to ask you please to focus your holiday message this year on compassionate turkey-free holiday dining and recipes. I am also asking NPR to refrain from stereotypical turkey jokes at the expense of these amazingly intelligent and sadly maligned and mistreated birds.

I ask you please to use your immense public influence to promote informed perceptions of turkeys, educating listeners to respect and appreciate turkeys and all birds who share the world with us.

As the media leader in providing first-rate radio programs that appeal to people who thrive on NPR’s informative coverage and creative ideas, I implore you and your staff to help make this year the most compassionate holiday season ever.

Thank you for your kind attention to my request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

NAME


NPR you are the voice of sanity,
now please add words of compassion.
help us make thanksgiving without turkey
the latest and greatest fashion,
please put in more than a few kind words
for this much maligned, but very cool bird!!!
