The Animal Interfaith Alliance held its inaugural meeting on 7th January 2014 at Golders Green Unitarian Church where there were representatives from the Anglican, Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Quaker and Unitarian faiths.
Vision, Mission & Objectives
A peaceful world where people of all faiths and none work together to treat animals with respect and compassion.
To create a united voice for animals from all of the world’s faiths and spiritual beliefs, based on their founders’ teachings, to lead the world in the humane treatment of animals.
To provide a stronger voice for animals through the interfaith group than can be provided by many separate voices from individual faiths;
To create a co-ordinated approach across the faiths to educate people on the humane treatment of animals;
To create a strong and co-ordinated campaigning organisation;
To provide a forum to learn from and share the wisdoms of other cultures and traditions;
To disseminate that wisdom through literature, including a regular newsletter, books and orders of service, and through the internet, including a website and social media, which can also be used as a campaign tool;
To inspire others through interfaith conferences and services with a major event celebrating World Animal Day on 4th October;
To promote a vegetarian/vegan diet, which also embraces the issues of environmental protection, healthy lifestyles and ending world hunger, and to end animal exploitation.
