Last week, longtime vegan Elizabeth Kucinich announced she will be the new director of public affairs for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a nonprofit organization that supports preventive medicine, overhauling the national school lunch program, and higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research. Kucinich, who is married to Congressman (and former presidential candidate) Dennis Kucinich, reportedly applied for the job after spotting a PCRM classified. A dedicated animal-rights activist, her first big project with the nonprofit will be garnering support for the Great Ape Protection Act, which seeks to end invasive medical research on chimpanzees.
