I really liked your post! It was interesting and really gave me some insight on individuals who value animal rights. I am working on a volunteer project that happens to be directly linked to your post! It proves to be a connection since we are both speaking about animal rights and how citizens can work hand in hand in order to help decrease the number of incidents where animals are taken advantage of. I have not written many posts on animal rights on my NewsActivist page however, you can view my post on the environment as it will give you insight on how I want to inflict change.
