Welcome to the Animal People Forum…

...a global forum in which people who care about animals can speak and be heard! We're here to foster the open exchange of knowledge, ideas, and tactics relevant to animal rights, which we define simply as the belief that animals' lives and experiences matter. We welcome submissions from anyone of any background, and through the interaction of diverse ideas and perspectives, hope to arrive at new insights to guide us toward a brighter, more compassionate future for all living creatures.
