Eddie Sullivan – New York, USA
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.
Michael Harren – New York, USA
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.
Gene Maurillo – San Francisco, USA
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.
Michal Klein – New Jersey, USA
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.
Lauri A. MacLean – Connecticut, USA
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.
William Nievaart – New York/ North Carolina, USA
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.
Paola Gaviño – New Jersey, USA
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.
Adyx Olea Olea – Mexico City, Mexico
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.
Caetano Laprebendere – New York, USA
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.
Raffi Marhaba – New York, USA
A liberação dos animais não-humanos e dos animais humanos tem de ser radical e com foco na decolonização. Fato: adoro música eletrônica.
