Statement on Violence

Responsible Policies for Animals opposes acts of violence, the use of threats, obscenity, or degrading or insulting language, and any other behavior that does physical harm to any human being or diminishes any human being’s dignity or humanity in the name of, or in association with, the animal rights movement. Responsible Policies for Animals believes animal rights uplifts humanity and nonhuman animals and that any behavior that does the opposite harms the animal rights movement, no matter what organizations, affiliations, or claims to legitimacy or achievement may be associated with the perpetrator.
