Russell Simmons

“Cruelty is cruelty, whether it’s cruelty to children, to the elderly, to dogs and cats, or to chickens.”

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker

“Remember that the biggest thing you could do today is a small act of kindness.”

Alice Walker

“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites or women for men.”

Angela Davis

“I think there is a connection between … the way we treat animals and the way we treat people who are at the bottom of the hierarchy.”

RZA

“When you think about a better tomorrow, you think about veganism in the world.”

Dick Gregory

“Animals and humans suffer and die alike. Violence causes the same pain, the same spilling of blood, the same stench of death, the same arrogant, cruel, and brutal taking of life. We don’t have to be a part of it.”
