What, in your opinion, is the single most important thing a person can do to help animals on this planet?

Adopt a compassionate lifestyle and lead by example, including attempting to educate the ppl around you about the plight of animals being treated as items or products. So many people are ignorant to what happens behind closed doors, and if we can show them that they need us to be their voices, and that it's ok to stand up for innocent sentient beings, we can help so many animals.

Why would you like to be part of an animal rights group?

Because I want to see all cages empty, all people to adopt a vegan lifestyle, all sentient beings treated with the dignity and respect, kindness and compassion they deserve, and I want to be a part of making that a reality.

Have you ever engaged in animal/earth activism (demonstrations, tabling, marches etc)? Tell us about it, and please be honest. Your experience level is NOT important!

Yes, a long time ago. I used to regularly attend demonstrations against a variety of animal abusers. My favorite protests were against Ferber Furs in Philly. I loathe the fur industry, and we sure got peoples attention. Also GSK and HLS demos. I've taken part in vegan outreach on South st. by leafletting, and participated in circus demonstrations as well, also leafletting.

Do you follow any special dietary regimen?

I am vegan
