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

Become a vegan and spread veganism

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

It's important to do whatever activism we can, besides being vegan. It's also important to have the camaraderie of like-minded people.

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!

I was very active in animal rights in the 80's, not much since. I was the right-hand person for my boyfriend, who ran a group in North Jersey. I headed the outreach committee. I tabled a lot, have demonstrated, marched, walked to raise money, gotten arrested, been thrown out of a Fred the Furrier seminar. I went on a hunger strike for 16 days for the animals. And just the other night I did something which shall remain unspecified.

Do you follow any special dietary regimen?

Vegan for 36 years. I try to eat healthfully, but that's secondary to being vegan. I also try to eat as many vegan desserts as possible :-)

Introduction

I have been a vegan for 36 years and have turned many people vegan. Vegan is the main way I identify myself. I try to follow ahimsa and live healthfully and naturally. My politics and social philosophy are radical. I love rock music. I am weird.
