From the child who asks her parents where meat comes from, launching her family on a vegan journey, to the attorney arguing cases to improve the lives of billions of factory farmed animals, animal rights activism takes many forms. Each person who lives a vegan lifestyle or marches for animal rights is one more voice speaking up for animals. And, lucky for us, there are infinite opportunities for compassionate action every day.
Vegan lifestyles undeniably keep a great many animals from harm. But the number of animals you can save by changing your diet pales in comparison to what is achievable through advocacy. You can save hundreds of times more animals through animal rights activism or vegan advocacy than you can save by merely being vegan.
Vegan activism is a proactive approach to communicating and acting the idea in which all non-human animals are entitled to the possession of their own lives. Vegan activists merely present the truth in the many ways humans exploit animals and take away their freedom.
