Please describe your interest/involvement in animal rescue/rights.

I'll admit that animal rights is not my top issue -- I'm more passionate about ending war, ending ecocide, and ending capitalism -- but I see all the issues as connected. Empathy for animals is closely connected to empathy for humans. Capitalism is in several ways (some of them indirect) the root cause of not only war, ecocide, and poverty, but also cruelty to animals. We can't end one of those problems without ending them all.

Are you currently working for or volunteering for an animal rescue organization?

No. But I do run http://NashvillePeaceCalendar.org and also http://www.nashvillepeacejustice.org/Eblast . Both of those would be good places to advertise meetings, protests, and other events of any animal rights organization.

What are you hoping to get from this meetup group experience?

The circus is coming to Nashville this weekend. If you folks are planning to protest it, I want to join you.
