The Animal Liberation Forum is a Safe Space. We will NOT cooperate with organizations and/or individuals that are willing to ignore human rights in the importance of fighting for total liberation, including but not limited to the fight against homophobia, transphobia, racism, fascism, ableism, sexism, and/or any other bigotry. You will be asked to leave if you engage in these behaviors.
