    What is activism?

    Activism, defined as an intentional action to bring about social change, creates the social awareness needed to aid animal welfare workers in their necessary and urgent animal rescue work. While animal welfare is a reaction to a problem (pet overpopulation, homeless animals, inhumane treatment of farm animals), animal rights activism, by recognizing animals’ right to exist for their own reasons, not for human use, and by raising awareness and spreading humane education, seeks to address such problems from the root. If animal welfare is a lifeboat, activism is the engine that keeps it afloat.

    Who created

    The ActivistBETA website is independently conceived, developed and maintained by Najib Shams (website designer/developer, artistic photographer) and Hania Jurdak (former BETA co-founder, freelance writer.
