Hello, and Thank you for taking an interest in our Aurora’s Animal Rights Advocates group.

My name is Katie Barber founder of AARA


What is AARA? 
Aurora’s Animal Rights Advocate's is a grassroots animal rights and vegan outreach group. Our mission is to raise awareness to the inexcusable treatment and use of animals in the food, fashion, experimentation, and entertainment industries. We expose the truth to help people understand the implications of their lifestyle choices, not only on the animals but also on the future of our planet and the overall health of each individual. AARA host’s local vegan potlucks, movie screenings, outreach events, bearing witness events, demonstrations and more. Our events aim to help teach others the benefits of a plant-based diet, how to be a good friend to animals and the planet. We also support local farm animal sanctuaries, with our main focus onWishing Well Sanctuary(Bradford, ON).

My love for animals has always been strong and today I am a Registered Veterinary Technician. I have always been an animal lover having various pets (Cats, Dogs, Hamster, Rats, Birds, Fish) growing up and having a mother who loved to care for wildlife. I can remember multiple occasions in my life from various people telling me “you can't save them all”, but I wanted to. The thought of being a vegetarian came to mind multiple times in life. I knew I didn’t like the thought of animals dying (I had never heard of a vegan) but being a picking eating kid I loved my meat and hated my vegetables. When I was 26 I wanted to become more aligned with my inner values and I started going to yoga and do some soul searching a coworker told me about a group of compassionate people who “bear witness” to animals on their way to slaughter. This turned out to be the groupToronto Pig SaveAfter a few months of attending vigils, outreach leafleting and protests in Toronto I started looking for other Activist groups in my area of Aurora but found nothing. So I started aFacebook group, Aurora’s Animal Rights Advocates. The focus is helping people open their eyes and understand the truth behind the way animals are treated by industry. I hope to awaken the minds of individuals who are living with no real understanding of how animals are really treated for food, science, entertainment, fashion etc. We plan to host leafleting events, potlucks, movie nights, Vegan food give always, and bear witness to animals at theNewmarket Meat PackersandKing Cole Ducks Farm at Warden and Aurora Rd.

So that’s a brief sum up of what AARA does and how it came to be.

Who is AARA?
Aurora's Animal Rights Advocates are people just like you. People with a strong passion and love for animals. We live in and around Aurora, Ont. We are Animal Rights Advocates!

Why AARA Needs Your Support?
AARA is a small grassroots volunteer base group. We depend on the support of the volunteers and community funding for hosting events, printing posters/leaflets/banners, joining community events, attending out of town events, supporting local farm sanctuary's, creating videos takes a lot of volunteer time and money. With your continued support we can reach even more people with a message of compassion. We want to be able to continue to host monthly potluck events and add more events to the local GTA area.

I hope you can join us for our upcoming potluck event Facebook Events
