I've been vegan for almost 9 years and became active 5 years ago after seeing animals at a slaughterhouse near my home. While I was in NYC, I joined CF in the Pride march. I found the community to be incredibly welcoming, passionate and will inspire you to create a better world for human and non-human animals. Fun Fact: I started an animal rights group in high school.
You can bear witness at a cow slaughterhouse like we do each week with Toronto Cow Save or at a Starbucks – an action we were so excited to join with CF and DxE Toronto – and say No, this is violence, this is wrong. We want to create a world with animal equality and change starts here! Fun fact: My fav author is Tolstoy.
I started in activism when I was 12 - doing guerrilla theater and disruptions at public events and parades etc. Over the years I've sought out groups and organizations that deal DIRECTLY with social and environmental causes - I'm so happy to have found CF as that's what they're all about. Fun fact: I'm a crooner, film maker and model which I also use as tools of social change.
As soon as I became vegan, I realized that it wasn't enough. I felt a very strong obligation to do all in my power to bring an end to the injustices being committed against our fellow earthlings. I was thrilled to find that there was a strong community of activists in our city that I could unite with! Fun fact: I can't imagine life without chocolate.
I feel so empowered and inspired by this movement and by the community of passionate activists that are by my side in this struggle. I never dreamed I would be speaking out for veal calves inside of a Starbucks while spilling "blood" on the floor, but we did together! Fun fact: I stopped eating animals in high school.
In the beginning I felt really nervous participating in and doing speak-outs at these actions, but I knew they were too important to not be a part of. Being part of this community has enabled me to become more confident doing speak-outs, as well as outreach. I have grown as an activist so much! Fun Fact: I enjoy singing and dancing!
In the beginning looking for activism opportunities was a struggle. I wasn't a strong enough activist and I wasn't confident. When I found CF I found an activism community and friends for life. They are inclusive of all and they support other groups as well. And because of all this CF is one of the first groups I direct people towards who want to get into activism. Fun fact: I have a veggie garden on my roof.
An animal rights activist, humane educator, ethical vegan, blues singer and mom to two cats. Fun fact: I'm a hippie at heart and dreams of living in a tiny house in the woods and growing all her own food and sharing her life with a bunch of rescue animals.
