If you’re shy, uncomfortable with public speaking, or new at activism, you may feel like you are all alone. But it only takes one individual to reach hundreds of people and influence their often-unwittingly exploitative attitudes and lifestyles. Perhaps there are no animal rights groups in your area, but there is at least one animal rights activist … you. Anyone can be an activist. It doesn’t take special skills or superhuman abilities. You just need to care enough about animals to want to help them.
