The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We believe that every animal (human or non-human) has an equal right to be safe, happy, and free. And we will create that world in one generation.
We are animals, and we believe that every animal (human or non-human) has an equal right to be safe, happy, and free. And we will create that world in one generation. We create spaces where activists can feel supported, understood, and empowered. We directly challenge the systems that leave animals in cages and chains. There are times in history when uncomfortable truths must be said; we will say them. We seek to change, not just individual behavior, but the rules of the game. We make each other stronger. We build each other up. And we teach one another to be the best and most effective activists we can be. We push ourselves to amplify the victims' voices, and to act as the animals would, if they could.
Direct Action Everywhere made me feel safe and accepted. They allowed me to use my voice for the animals and because of the amazing activists I met, I really believe we can change the world for animals in one generation.
