Let's Get IP28 on the Ballot

About The Initiative

People for the Elimination of Animal Cruelty Exemptions

Initiative Petition 28 (IP28), formally titled People for the Elimination of Animal Cruelty Exemptions (PEACE) Act, is a proposed ballot initiative filed with the state of Oregon for the November 2026 general election.

If enacted, IP28 would remove many of the exemptions from Oregon’s laws against animal abuse, animal neglect, and animal sexual assault. Due to these exemptions, animals on farms, in laboratories, in exhibitions, and in the wild are not currently protected under these laws from intentional, knowing, and reckless injury.

We believe everyone should be equally protected under the law, and that all animals deserve equal consideration, regardless of whether or not we consider them our companions. All animals deserve a life free from cruelty.

Before it gets to the ballot, we need to collect 117,173 signatures from registered voters in the state of Oregon. If you want to help, find out how you can volunteer to collect signatures or how you can donate to the campaign. You can read the full text of IP28 here.
