As we enter an age of unparalleled opportunities for activism, there is an increasing urgent need for professional training of activists. FaunAccion was born in August, 2015 in direct response to this need. FaunAccion is the first Mexican organization that provides education and on-the-ground training for what is traditionally referred to as ” animal rights”activism. Although FaunAccion supports the “animal rights” model, it incorporates a political-ethical critique called “anti-speciesism”, a view that radically changes the concept of species in order to destabilize the oppression ‘humans” exert over “non humans”.With this viewpoint, we seek to strengthen citizen’s activism in order to contribute to the transformation of all structures of abuse in Mexico.
To provide quality training as well as practical tools through workshops, conferences, forums, counseling, advice and mentoring to optimize the impact on institutions, groups and Mexican citizens that work to change oppressive and unjust realities. To support groups and projects inspired on principles such as respect, ethics and anti-speciesist philosophy, with a call for change and committed to the creation of societies of peace and justice to build and cement a community based on action and collaboration among all the sectors that conform our country.
