I love CF because of the creative and effective ways we are liberating people's hearts and minds. I also love that they actively include activists from all walks of life and that we are concerned with liberating humans and non-humans alike. CF is also a lot of fun, and it feels like a family. Fun fact: I make futuristic electronic music in my spare time.
After being vegan for a few years, i started to realize that Facebook activism was only serving to deepen my hopelessness about the world ever changing for animals. With CF, I am able to take my energy to the street and really educate others about veganism with some like-minded people who have now become good friends. Fun fact: I am a musical performance artist working on my second full length solo show in cooperation with Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary.
I became a Vegan at 63 and an activist shortly after. I have never before experienced the depth and all-encompassing passion that I now share with others in this movement. I also use over 40 years of self-realization studies in my approach with pre-vegans and pre-activists to shine the light of peace and love for all. I am so happy to be part of this community. Fun fact: I love taking comedy improv classes, going to shows and making people laugh.
I never thought I would have the courage to do activism, as I am an introvert with a history of shyness and social anxiety, but less than a year into being vegan, after being inspired by CF action videos, I decided being vegan wasn't enough. After my first protest, I felt empowered and a surge of confidence being part of such an amazing group of people making a difference. Fun Fact: I make yummy vegan pizza, as well as my own almond milk and hummus.
My activism is an extension of my best self. The most compassionate, brave and just parts of me are compelled to stand among a community of like minded individuals as we make every effort to make a difference - I consider it a privilege. When not disrupting I share my loft with two beautiful cats and two small dogs. I also love punk rock, tattoos, converse (who doesn’t) and the beach. Oh yeah and I’m a Scorpio.
I have always believed in doing things for the greater good overall like charities, soup kitchens, clothing drives, and civil rights activism. I got a chance to talk to some of the members of CF and this was it. Animal rights activism has become a big part in my life through demonstrations, leafletting, and volunteering at Animal Sanctuaries. Fun Fact: I have been straight edge for 4 years now.
Por mucho tiempo he estado interesada en los derechos animales y he participado con varios grupos y de distintas formas. Esta comunidad me ofrecio una forma nueva de activismo y me ayudo a encontrar mi voz por los animales (yo no sabia que la tenia). Desde que participo con CF siento que soy una activista con mayor confianza en mi misma. Dato curioso: Todas las noches comparto mi cama con 3 perros rescatados.
Collectively Free me ha inspirado a gritar y alzar la voz lo más alto posible por tantos inocentes que mueren día a día como objetos olvidando su sufrimiento y dolor, me inspira luchar y pelear por un mundo mejor para ellos. Dato curioso: tengo miedo de las serpientes.
Después de darme cuenta de que ser vegano era solo lo mínimo que se puede hacer por los animales, me mudé a NYC porque es ilegal protestar como extranjero en México. Agradezco haber descubierto Collectively Free ya que sus acciones creativas y pacificas son exactamente lo que vine a hacer. Dato curioso: me volví vegano viviendo en una granja de lácteos holandesa que era orgánica, free-range, 'humane'. Ahí entendí que no hay buena forma de hacer algo malo.
A liberação dos animais não-humanos e dos animais humanos tem de ser radical e com foco na decolonização. Fato: adoro música eletrônica.
