Save-the-Date: Memorial-and-Independence Day for Animals!

The Rise for Animals Team, May 22, 2024

The Animal Rights movement relies on many, diverse forms of activism, and they are all important. We do, however, wish that there were more opportunities for advocates to connect in person and literally stand together for animals.

This is just one reason we’re so excited about the upcoming National Animal Rights Day (NARD) on June 2, 2024! 

[NARD] is an annual day observed in more than 50 countries around the world, on the first Sunday in June, for the purpose of giving a voice to all animals and raising awareness for their rights. It’s ‘Memorial Day’ and ‘Independence Day’ for the animals combined.

On this day, special NARD events are held in major cities in each country, to Commemorate the billions of animals who die every year by human hands, Educate the public about the current treatment of animals and the alternatives to it, and Celebrate the progress that is being made every year towards ending the suffering of animals. 

These events also bring the local animal rights communities together, and allow people to mourn together, celebrate together, and empower each other to keep on fighting for animals.

Don’t miss this impactful opportunity to connect, build community, get inspired, and (peacefully) fight for animal rights. Check out our events page to see what’s happening near you (before, during, and after NARD)!
