Do you squirm at the thought of handing out leaflets, holding a sign at a protest, or asking for vegan options in your cafeteria? Do you find yourself taking action for animals solely from your computer (*Christina sheepishly raises hand*)?

If you answered yes, you may be at risk of being a slacktivist, according to a recent article posted by CNN (click here to read it!).

Being a slacktivist is better than not being an activist at all, don’t get me wrong—I used to be the biggest animal rights slacktivist ever. We definitely shouldn’t stop using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets to spread the word about the cruelties that animals face—but getting up from the computer is what’s going to really change the world for animals. Social media is just a part of the equation.

Here are some ways you can cut the slack from your activism:

Organize a protest (3,000 points).

It’s surprisingly simple to organize a protest, all you need to do is e-mail us at [email protected] and we’ll help you get started. We’ll even mail you materials—for free!

Participate in a protest (1,500 points).

If you’re on peta2, you’ll get an e-mail each time there is a protest near you. All you’ve got to do is show up—leaflets and signs are always provided at the protests we e-mail you about.

Pass out leaflets (750 points).

This is super easy. Just grab some stickers and leaflets and head to a public sidewalk with lots of foot traffic. You can print leaflets here, or e-mail us at [email protected] if you’re in need of some. We’ll send them to you for free!

Collect petition signatures (points vary).

It’s more than just getting names and e-mail addresses. When you ask someone to sign a petition, you’re talking to them face-to-face about facts. Click here to print our petitions.

Okay guys, let’s get out there, get noticed, and literally be the voice for billions of animals. 🙂

I’ll be cutting out my slacktivism this Wednesday when I help table at Warped Tour with Anna and Rachel. What are YOU going to do to get less slacktive and more active? 😀
