WHO WE ARE

Wake is a nonhuman animal rights organisation.

 
 

Our vision:

“A WORLD WHERE NONHUMAN ANIMALS ARE RESPECTED AND LIVE FREE FROM SPECIESIST DISCRIMINATION AND OPPRESSION”

 

OUR MISSION:

We believe that the fundamental rights of nonhuman animals need to be legally recognised. To accomplish this we educate and inspire people to mobilise in ending speciesism and dismantling species-based oppression. We aid in the rehabilitation of nonhuman animals.

OUR VALUES:

Respect

  • We treat others as we would like to be treated.

  • We show due regard for the feelings, wishes, and rights of others.

  • We listen to, and respect the ideas and opinions of others.

Courage

  • We are willing to face not physical danger but emotional pain, disapproval, insecurity and uncertainty rather than compromise our moral principles.

  • We stand proud of our values, beliefs and openly accept challenges and criticism.

Integrity

  • We respect all animals’ rights at all times.

  • We follow through on our commitments.

  • We recognise when things go wrong and take accountability for our actions.

Community

  • We believe that there is strength in a diverse activist community, focused on collaboration and solidarity.

  • We understand the importance of being and working together; sharing our opinions and feelings.

  • We believe in shared leadership.


whether nonhuman or human, all animals are persons. in our need for protection and our right to justice, we are all the same
