Kat Graham Takes On Speciesism to Create a Kinder World

One minute—that’s all you need to see actor Kat Graham state her case in a poignant new video, with a vital message that everyone needs to hear. Her point is simple: “If you are opposed to abuse, torture, oppression, exploitation, child abuse, sexual assault, murder, you don’t pay for it.”

The Vampire Diaries star and longtime social justice activist has championed animal rights in the past by helping PETA expose the filthy conditions that hens face on egg farms. Now, Graham joins forces with PETA once again, this time using her influential voice to power our #EndSpeciesism campaign. Shot and directed by Darren Genet at Full Circle Farm Sanctuary in Atlanta, this must-see video speaks out against violence toward all sentient beings.

Watch it, process it, and then share it with everyone you know—because it’s going to take all of us to create a kinder world.

What Is Speciesism?

Prejudice or Discrimination Based on Species

Cuddling a kitten while devouring a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich …

Wearing a coat stuffed with feathers plucked from geese and trimmed with coyote fur while walking your dog …

Voicing outrage when trophy hunters slaughter an elephant but calling fly fishing a “hobby” …

These are all examples of speciesist behavior.

From childhood, most humans have been conditioned to view certain species with respect and compassion and to view others as disposable or worthless—based on completely arbitrary assumptions. But it doesn’t matter if you have feathers, fur, scales, or hair. Complex feelings such as love, sadness, pain, and joy are not unique to humans. And we all have a will to live.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
