About Pete

Vegan since 2000, elected board member of NARN since 2007. I currently serve as the board's Vice President. I believe that the drive that encourages animal exploitation is the same that allows people to exploit other people and the earth. Animal rights is the final frontier of social justice issues; it is all the same fight for fairness and liberty. Animal rights is the principle, veganism is the practice. "Until lions have their own historians, the hunters will always be the heroes" (African proverb)
