WHO ARE WE?
We are queers, single mothers, Latinx, indigenous, disabled, Muslims, trans, working class, students, anarchists, black, immigrants, Asians…. We are not the faces you see on mainstream vegan brochures and ads. We are not the voices you hear by leaders of the mainstream animal rights movement. We are our own movement. We are here to stay and here to fight!

WHY DO WE FIGHT FOR ANIMAL LIBERATION?

We grew up learning that animals are “objects” for us to use and consume, that we have the right of power over them. We also grew up learning that we were different than the people we were taught to look up to, because of our ability, skin color, assigned gender, religion, our native language or who we were attracted to. In other words, we grew up learning that in our society it’s ok for us to not have power because of who we are as human beings, but it’s ok for us to have power over nonhuman beings. We reject this power structure.

We embrace nonhumans as our fellow victims in a larger system of violence and as our allies in a collective fight for justice and liberation.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN US?
Because we need to fight together – now more than ever. We cannot afford to wait before even more laws are passed that speed up climate change and make it harder for us to resist injustice. We need a new system that aligns with our values.

HOW CAN YOU JOIN?
