The voiceless need advocates.
I've attended several (perhaps 8-9x)demonstrations in NYC and Long Island (i.e. anti-circus, fur-free, Vegan outreach) and walked for farm animals four times. I've tabled a few times as well. Once I leafleted in union Square Park, but that wasn't for me. I also do meet and greets, advocate for greyhounds with my local group Grateful Greyhounds.
I'm an optimist who sometimes falls into hopelessness when I see how devastatingly cruel humans are. But as Jewel's song "Hands" says "I won't be made useless, or be idle with despair" So, animal advocacy is an essential part of who I am.
