Activism for animals made EASY.
Got five minutes and want to do some good? SAFE is lucky to have many dedicated volunteers that help us in the ‘real world’ with events, protests and in the office. Some people can only spare a few minutes a week. If you are in this category, SAFE Animal Action Network is for you!
Our new SAFE Animal Action Network (SAAN) is a crew of passionate supporters and activists, volunteering for only a few minutes each week to help SAFE’s efforts advocating for animals. SAAN has members from all over New Zealand and some international animal champions too.
Sign up and SAAN will send email prompts on quick and easy online actions like signing a petition, posting on social media, commenting on a news piece or emailing decision makers. Sometimes SAAN will be in contact every few days, at other times, just every few weeks. Occasionally there will be the option to turn your activism up a notch, with actions over the phone or in person.
The explosive growth of global connectivity through social media has provided a unique platform to harness ‘people power’ for positive change. Petitions, trending hashtags and coordinated online lobbying have resulted in huge changes in corporate policy, public law and consumer behaviour across a diverse range of issues such as human rights, environmental preservation and of course, animal protection. The proof is in the pudding; just recently SAFE was part of a successful global push for international food manufacturing giant, General Mills, to go cage-egg-free across their entire product range.
Joining SAAN is a simple, effective way to magnify your impact for animals. When we get together, we are a force for change.
