COMPASSION AND ACTIVISM FOR ANIMALS

About
 
MISSION STATEMENT:

Nashville Animal Advocacy is dedicated to promoting animal rights and veganism in Tennessee through education, research, special events, protests and legislation.

ABOUT US:

 

Nashville Animal Advocacy's mission is to spread awareness about the plight of animals used for food, fashion, sport, entertainment, testing and research. Our society has reduced animals to mere commodities, leading to their horrific suffering and a loss of life numbering in the trillions. Our fundamental goal is education on the injustices that each of us, individually, have the ability to reverse and end. We promote an ethical vegan philosophy and the right to live, free from harm, for every sentient animal.

Nashville Animal Advocacy originally began as a Meetup.com group in 2012 by Laura Levy. When Laura moved from Nashville, she passed her responsibilities to Tricia Lebkuecher, who had been co-organizing since 2013. Tricia met her soon-to-be co-organizer, Amy Pruett in 2014 at a Ringling Bros. Circus protest. Amy and Tricia had made the decision to build the Meetup group into a non-profit organization for more effective activism.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we facilitate vegan outreach at many festivals in Middle Tennessee, host volunteer days at animal sanctuaries, advocate for humane legislation and hold protests and rallies against the use of animals in food, fashion, medical training and entertainment.

 

Our organization's management team is vegan; they work on a volunteer basis--and all are loving care-givers of adopted rescue animals. Our collective hope is that someday the world will be a safe and happy place for everyone, humans and animals alike.

Be sure to join our social Meetup group, Nashvegans.

CHOOSE VEGAN FOR MOTHERS

Happy Mother's Day.png
Mother's day is an opportunity to celebrate and honor all mothers because they make the world go around. Motherhood is sacred - filled with love, nourishment, enrichment, teaching, protection and worry - always worries. Mothers are life bearers. Motherhood is a spiritual affair that we should never interfere with or take for granted with any mother.
 
Yet, animal agribusiness is fully dependent on exploiting mothers to produce the next generation, only to destroy the mother/baby bond in order to feed us heart disease and cancer so they can make huge profits, without even a thought of the physical and emotional toll it takes on animals or the environmental damage it causes. Read our BLOG on how dairy is a mother's worst nightmare.
