Founded in 1984, ARK II - The Animal Rights Kollective is a Toronto-based, grassroots animal advocacy organization. ARK II organizes and hosts events in and around the Toronto area on a broad range of issues including: farmed animals; veganism; animals used for textiles, including leather, fur, and wool; animals used in laboratories; hunting and fishing; and companion animals, including strays and over-breeding.
ARK II seeks to promote and protect the rights of all animals and foster their individual liberties through direct action, political action and public awareness campaigns. We will strive to build a world where animal liberation and human liberation become one in a fabric of mutual respect, tolerance and compassion.
ARK II's newly formed collective is pleased to announce that Toronto Burrito Project is being launched in June 2015.
Toronto Burrito Project (TBP) involves direct grassroots action and face-to-face participation with members of our community who are underfed and/or underhoused. We recognize that the food system is unjust and that this is not a long term solution. Our work will also include direct grassroots activism through deputations and activities on a municipal and provincial level.
The goal is to participate in and support existing projects to reach these goals, as well as initiating further activities and inviting interested people to participate in the Burrito Project and our political activities.
