Stephanie was the original editor and blogger for Animal Rights at Change.org, from the site's 2008 launch until December 2009. Along with some fellow advocates, she currently blogs at <a href="http://challengeoppression.com/">Animal Rights & AntiOppression,</a> which she founded upon leaving Change.org. See that site's <a href="http://challengeoppression.com/about/">about page</a> and <a href="http://challengeoppression.com/contributor-bios/">contributors page</a> for more information. --- She is an independent animal rights advocate, a vegan, a tree-hugging environmentalist, and a freelance editor and writer. She lives in St. Louis with an aging corgi-lab and an adolescent rescued pit bull. In her advocacy, she works to challenge prevailing perceptions of animals, to show the connections between animal exploitation and other injustices, to help people see that animals are more like us than different, and to encourage compassionate, nonviolent living and eating.
Stephanie hasn't started any petitions yet.
