Take a clear ethical stance against animal exploitation.
It's important to understand and discuss animal agriculture's enormous environmental impacts – but we believe this should be done within a framework that acknowledges this damage is incidental to the great moral wrong of needlessly exploiting others (both human and non-human) in the first place.
Although the vegan ethic is often positioned as "extreme," it's really just a logical extension of one's already-existing belief in fairness and justice. Veganism disrupts the social norm that insists animals should be used and killed by humans for reasons other than survival. When thoughtfully executed, veganism can allow us to take a more consistent stance against our culture’s relentless exploitation of people, planet, and animals.
