Principles and Values of the Animal Justice Movement
A defined set of principles and values is of great symbolic and strategic importance. It establishes a movement; creates a shared identity; empowers and inspires us; and holds us up to high standards of ethical and strategic integrity.
Inspired by many previous social justice movements, we have facilitated a Lush-funded series of workshops with organisers and thought-leaders from the grassroots groups and organisations to articulate these principles and values.
We are now working with the participants of these workshops who are now in the process of drafting these values in order to make them available for the wider movement. More information will be available once this process is finished.
Movement Building Stream at Brighton Vegfest 2019
We are excited to be collaborating with Vegfest UK to host a two-day movement building stream of workshops and talks at Brighton Vegfest March 23/24. The movement building stream will platform people from across the Animal Justice Movement to highlight and share best practice to provide people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to work together and achieve transformative change for other animals.
