We believe that animals matter for their own reasons and that they should not be used by human beings for profit, pleasure, amusement, or simply because it is our habit to do so.We seek to abolish the use and exploitation of animals for human interests, rather than simply reforming or improving the conditions under which animals are used and exploited. We believe that animals are morally entitled to pursue their lives free of human violence according to the needs of their species and should be free from coerced physical and psychological suffering.


The Animal Rights Coalition works to end the suffering, abuse, and exploitation of non-human animals through information, education, and advocacy.


 The Right of animals to be free from exploitation, cruelty, neglect, and abuse. The Right of laboratory animals not to be used in cruel or unnecessary experiments. The Right of farmed animals to an environment that satisfies their basic physical and psychological needs. The Right of companion animals to a healthy diet, protective shelter, and adequate medical care.


“I felt a growing call to get active for animals, so I decided to attend one of the Animal Rights Coalition’s Wednesday meetings, and I have been a volunteer since. The group provides me with a sense of belonging and work so meaningful that it influenced me to change career paths to advocate for animals and the environment.”—Nick, canvasser, volunteer for 1 ½ years


It is nearly impossible for a person to live on this planet without causing some suffering and death to animals. Animals are killed and displaced on farms to grow crops.
