Next International Day of ActioN
WORLD DAY FOR THE END OF SPECIESISM
Every month, DxE unites activists across the world – in 170 cities and 34 countries – in a single day of action. Join us as we build a movement for animal rights!
MODEL ACTION PLAN +
Activists will gather in a busy public place and set up a "Human Meat" display. The display includes 1-2 activists laying in a large tray, covered in saran wrap and fake blood, to replicate a "meat tray" found in a grocery store. Other activists hold signs or talk with the public.
Email email@example.com if you have questions.
MONTHLY THEME +
Join DxE and PETA for a powerful action on World Day for the End of Speciesism*. We will be creating a visual display that forces the public to think about animal rights.
*Speciesism is an ideology that considers the lives and interests of animals as not worthy of respect simply because they belong to another species.
Check Facebook for an event in your city. If you don’t see your city listed, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DxE’s organizers around the world build empowered networks for animal liberation. Based on the most innovative scholarship on social change, and the recent successes of the animal rights movement in countries around the world, DxE’s model focuses on building the kindling for a true social movement to be set ablaze. We do this by: (1) supporting activists locally in speaking strongly for animals under our organizing principles; and (2) connecting those activists with others worldwide to create empowered networks for change.
Animal rights activists in over 170 cities and 34 countries have united under the banner "It's not Food. It's Violence" since our campaign started in October 2013.
But we need your help to keep up the momentum. Join us this month as we once again demand an end to atrocities against innocent animals.

We are actively looking for organizers all over the world and invite all forms of participation. While we offer model action plans, even a simple leafleting outside of an establishment that promotes violence can be an important contribution to this campaign! It's easy to plan an action, and we will guide you through the process and send you materials, if you have need. Contact us via facebook or at email@example.com if you'd like to join.
While, in North America, we focus on Whole Foods and Chipotle -- we encourage protests at other locations where animals are used and killed. Solidarity protests have been held at other fast food chains, grocery stores, department stores ("It's not Beauty. It's Violence."), and countless other establishments that profit off of atrocities against animals.
Our campaign has one and only one message: that every animal (human or non-human) has an equal right to be safe, happy, and free.
Direct Action Everywhere’s mission is to empower activists to take strong and confident action wherever animals are being denigrated, enslaved, or killed, and create a world where animal liberation is a reality. We use creative nonviolent protest to tell the animals’ story. We are not afraid to push boundaries and even polarize the debate. We integrate the latest technology and most innovative research to most effectively advocate for the liberation of our animal friends. And we use the power of an open and welcoming community to make all of us more inspired and confident activists.
