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…
