Unfortunately, right now my involvement in animal rights is limited to the vegetarian club at Vanderbilt (VIVA--Vanderbilt Initiative for Vegetarian Awareness) and otherwise just speaking out about animal rights on the internet or in real life. So far I have had success in converting dozens of people to vegetarianism, though, which I honestly think is one of the most important aspects of animal rights. Needless to say I am NOT one of those people who thinks that vegetarianism is a personal choice. It is a moral obligation, and absolutely nothing less.
As I stated above, the only work I do is with my vegetarian club at school. We pamphlet, petition the school's dining directors, and organize various events, but honestly it's more focused on vegetarianism than animal liberation.
I want to be more involved in saving animals. It's the most important aspect of my life, because sadly I think it is the societal ill least likely to be resolved in my lifetime. I have tried contacting other animal rights groups/shelters to volunteer, and have so far not had any luck.
Hi! I'm a vegan, animal rights activist, and Vanderbilt graduate. I love animals and have the privilege of living with three of the best ones in the world. My children, Tofu and Gilly, of the cat variety, and my partner Eric, of the person variety.
