AFA functions on the premise that animals do not exist for humans to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment. Since animals are horribly exploited, we must raise awareness of their suffering, inspire others to not support it, and work for an end to cruelty towards animals.

AFA places an emphasis on educational outreach. Each person who adopts a vegan diet saves the lives of an estimated 100 animals per year, which gives great value to getting information to people that will help them to make and stay loyal to this change. Realizing this, AFA works locally to distribute information throughout Seattle and at special events, and does more widespread outreach by having a booth on tours, sending out requested vegan starter packs, and networking with activists throughout the country.

Go Vegan Today!
Vegans take personal responsibility for making the world a better place by giving up meat, dairy products, eggs, and other animal-derived items. By doing so, vegans don't contribute to the needless suffering of animals. Living a vegan lifestyle is the best thing you can do to help animals. On average a person switching from the standard American diet to a vegan diet will prevent the abuse and killing of about 100 animals per year. If you are not already vegan, please work to cut all meat, egg, and dairy products out of your diet. If you don't feel you can go vegan "cold turkey," you may want to try reducing your animal product consumption by a set amount every week, until you are completely vegan. Remember, it's not an all or nothing. Every time you choose vegan food over animal products you are making a difference. If going vegan seems too difficult right now, start simple. Eat veggie dogs, use soy milk on your cereal, increase the portions of the vegan foods you already eat.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Animals deserve equal consideration. Animals are not ours to use or abuse in any way. They are their own beings, with the right to their own lives free from molestation and unwanted interference.
What Gives Me Hope More people go vegan every day. The modern animal liberation movement has existed for only a few decades, but we are already seeing major changes in the way people think and consume. For example, you can now buy soy milk in every store in the USA and even fast food chains are carrying veggie products.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Ban factory farming, then I would pass a declaration of equal consideration, meaning that everything that was done in both the business world and in people's personal lives had to give equal consideration to other species.

Quotation When non-vegetarians say that human problems come first, I cannot help wondering what exactly it is that they are doing for human beings that compels them to continue to support the wasteful, ruthless exploitation of farmed animals.
