What is IJ?

The Northwest Animal Rights Network is an intersectional organization that operates under vegan principles for the rights of all sentient beings. The term “intersectionality” was coined by activist and Critical Race Theorist Kimberlé Crenshaw. See Professor Crenshaw talk about the importance of intersectionality and “bearing witness” here

Animal rights for social justice

In this interconnected world, a win for nonhuman animals is a win for human animals. Learn about the connection here. Many animal rights organizations are now wise to the serious entanglements of human and nonhuman rights issues, and work to address accordingly in an increasingly more interconnected way respective of the world we find ourselves within. For example, see our friends at the Food Empowerment Project and at Plant-Based Food Share!

Sentient Rights

NARN advocates for the rights of all sentient individuals, including all humans. Find out why here.

PNW Community Events Calendar

NARN is working to build a Community Justice Calendar for the purposes of consolidating social justice events across the PNW. We hope to develop a robust event hub that lists events from social justice movements united in a common goal to end injustice in an exploitative capitalist system. 

In an effort to get connected and organized across justice movements, please help us populate this Community Justice Calendar. 

If you are involved with or following other organizations or movements that host events around the PNW, please share their events with us at
