There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Dare To Rise Edition 2

This video is similar to the previous edition of "Dare to Rise" but now has multiple vocalists with a richer sound. Also, new and improved slides have been added. This is a music video about the wonder of creation, which helps us have reverence for all life so our spirits can be nourished and we can help heal the world.

Written by Anna Huckabee Tull and given by her and Kathyrn Shane (from the First Parish in Concord) to the Reverence for Life Program, Unitarian Universalist Animal Minister. Vocalists are from the First Parish in Concord

  1. Strikingly beautiful photography... some of it extremely sad, but all so amazing to see. The one shot of the primate (monkey?) hugging the white bird... very touching. Thank you for sharing this.
