SARV Activism Kit

The story of a 15 year old animal rescuer

Download these high resolution banners and brochures (links at the end) and get them printed.

More resources will be added regularly.

Here’s a model you can follow-

Things required- Backpack, brochures, banners, large screen phone/tablet (optional, but recommended).

  1. Take a few hundred brochures with you in the backpack, along with the banners.
  2. If you are alone, hold one of the banners such that they do not touch the ground. The optimal banner size is 2 feet * 3 feet.
  3. If you are nervous, wear a mask. That should help.
  4. If other activists join you, give them the other banners.
  5. If anyone shows interest, show them a video (from your phone/tablet) about why animal rights is important. You can choose from plenty of videos available online.
  6. If their response is suitable, hand them a brochure and note down their contact details (on your phone, or in a book)

What to do after the campaign-

  1. Follow up with all the contacts you’ve noted down.
  2. Get them to participate in your next campaign.
  3. Organize community building activities (potlucks, game nights, etc.) to build your team and to offer support, advice and mentorship to people who want to be vegan/be activists.
  4. The most important is to organize campaigns as regularly as possible.

You can tweak this model and create powerful protests, marches, demonstrations (use props), get the local media involved, go on TV and Radio stations and let everyone know about your cause.

Note-

1. Read up on animal rights theory and get your facts about veganism right. It’s a bad idea to go out there and not know what you’re talking about.

2. Do not make insensitive statements about the struggles other groups of people are going through. We’re all in this together.

3. Do not become arrogant when the campaigns get your cause (and you) attention. This is not about us, it’s about the animals who are made to go through tremendous pain and suffering for human wants. Focus on them, and always strategize keeping their best interests in mind, not yours.
