Join Us To Make History for Animals!
We are thrilled to announce our most ambitious campaign to date: to enshrine the world’s first ever Animal Bill of Rights. The Compassionate City campaign joins the forces of leading animal organizations to make real change for animals, city by city. We need you to be part of this historic effort. Join us now to be a part of animal rights history. Sign the petition and start the revolution to make every city a Compassionate City!
Leading animal rights organizations including Direct Action Everywhere, The Save Movement and In Defense of Animals have joined this mega-campaign to bear witness, save lives, invest in peace, and achieve animal liberation. We are starting with your neighborhood, your university, your Compassionate City.
An ethical revolution is stirring, as citizens of the world recognize that all animals deserve respect and compassion. With your help, we are starting a tidal wave of change for animals, one neighborhood, university, or city at a time, and encourage everyone who cares for animals to get involved.
Horrific acts of cruelty are routine across the world, yet disguised by powerful corporations that profit on ignorance and fraud. Compassionate City will bear witness to the suffering of animals, and bring transparency and integrity to communities. Cities will formally acknowledge the consciousness of animals, require warning statements on or near products of violence, and ban fraudulent "humane" animal products.
The slaughter of animals is one of largest mass killings in history, and if it continues unabated, threatens all life on this planet, including human beings. The campaign will end the slaughter of animals and build communities focused on rescuing, and not taking, life. Cities taking part will ban the slaughter of animals, provide sanctuary for exploited animals, host Carnivores Anonymous meetings, and protect the act of animal rescue.
Hundreds of billions of dollars are given to companies that exploit and kill animals, in one of the largest corporate welfare programs in history. Campaigners will reshape economic priorities to deter violence and support a peaceful world for all sentient life. Each Compassionate City will end subsidies for animal-exploiting corporations, promote animal-friendly alternatives, and create a regulatory system that protects all sentient life and funds sanctuaries for victims of violence.
Social movements over the past 200 years have expanded our moral universe beyond the frontiers of race, gender, and nationality. We will enshrine the constitutional right of all sentient beings to be free from violence and exploitation. The final goal of Compassionate City is to pass a resolution in support of the 28th Amendment to the Constitution, granting animals legal personhood and the right to live safe, happy, and free.
