A supportive, collaborative, and innovative community of activists dedicated to doing what it takes to creat real change on behalf of non-human animals.
In terms of scale, factory farming. The most abhorrent: vivisection.
I'd love to engage in a campaign to expose vivisection conducted in university laboratories. Often, the students whose fees contribute to such research are unaware of and not necessarily supportive of the ways in which their money is used to exploit animals. Others are simply uninformed of how the products they purchase and consume fund animal testing, or of how adversely vivisection affects the animals they care about.
I believe in the value of all life and the equality of all creatures, each of whom deserves autonomy over his/her body and access to emotional fulfillment. As a member of an exploitative and speciesist culture, I feel obliged to defend other beings.
