Live up to your values and stop making excuses for supporting animal cruelty!

Watch this video to learn more about the impacts your decisions have on animals. Remember – you have a choice, the animals don’t.

The Animal Rights Collective and peta2 will be hosting the Animal Liberation Project at GMU from October 5-8, 2009. This series of events will include a visual display, a vegan cooking class, and a film screening. Through a series of visual display panels, the Animal Liberation Project looks back at how we justified human exploitation throughout history, and continue to use the same excuses to justify the exploitation of animals today.

ALP Schedule:

Monday, 10/05: Easy Vegan Cooking Class. We will host a easy vegan cooking class featuring recipes from “PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook,” which teaches students how to make healthy and cruelty-free items with a few ingredients and a microwave. Check out some sample recipes.

Tuesday, 10/06: The Animal Liberation Project will be on the JC North Plaza, 11 am – 7 pm.

Wednesday, 10/07: Animal Liberation Project will be on the SUB I Main Quad, 11 am – 7 pm.

– Thursday, 10/08: The Animal Liberation Project will be on the JC North Plaza, 11 am – 7 pm. Then join us for a screening of “Liberation,” a longer version of the video clip featured above – 8 pm, SUB II Room 4.

Welcome to the Animal Rights Collective (ARC) Blog. We are (mostly) members of George Mason University, but we welcome members from the greater community that are interested in animal rights.

The Animal Rights Collective (ARC) is a group dedicated to raising awareness about animal rights on our campus and within the surrounding community. ARC was founded by a group of students that came together to protest the Ringling Brothers Circus on campus and to organize events pertaining to animal rights and vegan outreach.

We are a non-hierarchal group, meaning that our members are not arranged in any rank of authority. We do not recognize positions of president, vice president, etc. Collectives are an attempt to share power and typically operate on a consensus-driven and egalitarian basis. We believe that this allows each member of the group to feel empowered, remain autonomous, and know that their voice is equal to that of every other member. We welcome everyone to bring their thoughts and desires to the table, and our goals and campaigns will be determined by this collective energy. 

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, class, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, linguistic background, religion, or physical ability.

We’ll be blogging regularly about our campaigns, events, meetings, and doing our best to keep you up to speed about what’s going on with the Animals Rights Movement.

Stay tuned…
