One of our organizers was recently asked what was wrong with allowing people to just have different beliefs about how animals are used and her response is worth sharing!
I don’t think this is a matter of having different beliefs. Most people have the same values of compassion, nonviolence, and decency. This is a matter of our choices reflecting those beliefs. It’s so easy to eat vegan foods, and it benefits many other aspects of our life than just animals. But this is about the animals, and not allowing them to suffer for something we certainly don’t need. It’s unnecessary violence, and that’s not an opinion or a belief.

There has been an amazing response to our request to write letters to the Children’s Museum asking them to end their relationship with Ringling Bros circus. Thus far 49 of you have already pledged to write letters, and many of those are in the mail, including one from a very inspiring 5-year old girl. If the Children’s Museum won’t listen to her, then who will they listen to? Please join our letter writing campaign here: https://www.facebook.com/events/593862610665098/
Ringling should not be welcome in our city, and they certainly should not be invited to advertise their cruely directly to children. Continue reading

From the time my oldest was a young toddler, my family and I have been loyal members of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. I relish my children’s joy on the Sunday mornings when I announce our plans to visit the museum that day. There is nothing better than seeing their excitement and awe-struck expressions as they explore the museum and all its amazing exhibits. I have always appreciated the museum’s efforts to spark fires in children’s imaginations and foster a sense of wonder in our next generation. Undoubtedly, they put a lot of work into providing a positive experience for children–but is it out of a sense of responsibility to children, or is it all simply for profit? Continue reading
Fair Oaks Farms in Northwest Indiana is set to open a new facility to give the public a glimpse inside its pig farming operation. By now, the word is getting out about the horrible treatment of animals in the food production system. By opening this facility, Fair Oaks’ goal is to alleviate people’s fears about the cruel methods in which farmed animals are treated.
It seems that Fair Oaks wants the public to see the cleanliness of its facility and that the way its animals are treated looks quite different than the many undercover videos which document the abuses of farmed animals. Fair Oaks’ own website says this is the equivalent of “a Disney-like adventure”. Continue reading
Around 22 members of the Indiana Animal Rights Alliance staged a protest against Stardust Circus and its cruel kangaroo boxing act. Stardust has performed the act in many cities, but said earlier this year they would stop performing the act. A few months ago, they were caught in Connersville, Indiana continuing to do the kangaroo act despite the public outcry against it. Stardust had been advertising the kangaroo boxing act with flyers at gas stations around Noblesville: Continue reading
