We need to unequivocally advocate for human rights and animal rights. We need to, at the absolute bare minimum, not engage in the exploitation of human animals or the exploitation of nonhuman animals. Regarding humans, reject slavery and rape and murder and discrimination in your own life—respect and uphold human rights. Regarding other animals, be vegan—respect and uphold animal rights.
