Non-human individuals are the most oppressed and exploited beings on planet Earth.
This is not an opinion, it is a fact. Right now, there are billions, if not trillions, of individuals who are either being slaughtered, abused, enslaved, experimented on and/or assaulted.
To say that there is a more pressing issue the world has to solve than the exploitation of other animals is admitting to being ignorant about the reality of animal cruelty.
That is exactly why I want to encourage every single introvert out there to use their power of quietude for the betterment of our society.
You don’t need to be loud to help steer humanity in the right direction. All that is required is determination and passion – which are two qualities I have no doubts you already possess.
Here are introvert-friendly ways to be an activist for animal rights:
- Sign petitions at Care2.
- Create a blog and write about your lifestyle.
- Do background work for animal organizations (website managing, marketing etc.).
- Donate money.
- Donate food and toys to animal rescue places.
- Volunteer at farm sanctuaries.
- Write thank you emails to stores that have vegan alternatives and encourage them to keep adding new ones.
- Use social media to share helpful vegan resources.
There are so many things that one can do as an introverted activist for animal rights.
You are not limited by your personality; you are only limited if you decide that there is a line you are unable to cross. Anything extroverts can do, we can do equally well.
Remind yourself that the world needs all kinds of people to elevate it to a better level. We need people who are loud and those who are shy; individuals who are ready to shout and those who want to quietly write and express their thoughts through art.
All of us have a place under the sun. We all are able to contribute something unique and valuable.
