PETA's most recent campaign asks the question, "Whose skin are you in?" Its mission is to end the use of animal hides in designer fashion, specifically asking individuals to pledge to never wear any garment made from the "skin of cow, snake, alligator, seal, rabbit, or any other animal."
Lee Trotman wants people to think about the clothes they wear. The Southern California Edison (SCE) employee recently helped organize volunteers to assist in PETA's effort to raise public awareness of the ethical issues surrounding the clothes they choose to wear.
Trotman has long had a passion for volunteer work. As an employee with Southern California Edison (SCE), Trotman has served a great deal of causes, volunteering his time as frequently as possible to a wide variety of organizations, and most recently assisted PETA's campaign by helping to organize a volunteer effort aimed at spreading PETA's message. Volunteers passed out informational pamphlets and asked individuals to sign PETA's petition, pledging to never wear any product made from animal skin.
This is not the first campaign in which Trotman has assisted PETA. Trotman says he first became aware of the work PETA was doing when he began his tenure as a Southern California Edison (SCE) employee. "I have always had an affinity for animals. It was important to me that someone gave them a voice, stood up for them. When I saw the work that PETA was doing, I naturally gravitated toward it. It's been a very rewarding experience for me."
PETA has had a great deal of success in giving animals a voice. For many years, they have served to raise awareness on a number of issues regarding the ethical treatment of animals. According to Trotman, people "were very receptive to the message. There are a lot of compassionate people out there."
