Vegan Activist Alliance was founded on the belief that all Beings have a natural right to their autonomy and to live free from oppression regardless of species. We are a community-driven, anti-speciesist organization working to end the exploitation of beyond-human persons (animals). We seek to challenge power-holders and the status quo on who is deserving of freedom and autonomy and who is included in the fight for social justice.
VAA strives to achieve individual and systemic change of the exploitative industries that torture, silence, and kill beyond-human persons by movement and coalition building, raising awareness, building community, and working on policy. Our activations are experiential. We engage with the public via video footage, conversation, literature, art, music, poetry, performances, and plant-based food.
We seek to build community and empower activists to lead in the fight for liberation without depending on any particular group or brand– including us. Our goal is not only to create more activists but to build a more cohesive and inclusive movement.
VAA takes an abolitionist, radically inclusive, anti-speciesist, anti-racist, anti-colonial, anti-imperialist approach to our liberation work. We believe in the interconnectedness of all Beings and the planet and hold our consistent anti-oppression views firmly.
We stand in solidarity with all persons regardless of species and with all members of our community regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, ethnicity, citizenship status, religion or lack thereof, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, neurodiversity, physical and mental ability, and any other status as a federal, state or local protected class.
Thank you for joining us in the fight for liberation and for being in community with us.
