What we're about

ARC (Awakening Respect and Compassion For All Sentient Beings) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in the Deep South (Mobile, AL & Memphis, TN) whose mission is to raise awareness about the impact our daily choices have on other species and the environment, to inspire compassion for all sentient beings, and to guide, lead, and inspire positive transformation to create a more sustainable and compassionate world for all sentient beings.

If this mission resonates with you, please join us as we set up events to gather for support, education and adocacy efforts.

Educational STAND-IN

John S. Wilder Tower

Where is the best place to educate? A college campus! We will walk the campus at the University of Memphis passing out flyers about the organization's work against Factory Farming and other inhumane practices against our friends in fur and feather. We will meet at the front entrance of Wilder Tower and peacefully pass out educational materials. If someone wants to engage in conversation, we will engage them peacefully with the intent to educate and inspire changing hearts!
