Meet the Campaigners

Campaigners spearhead a specific campaign or set of campaigns and travel the country leading demonstrations and tabling events and pushing PETA’s campaigns forward by pressuring targets. Campaigners also act as spokespeople for the organization, and you may see them speaking at a city council meeting or on the evening news or addressing shareholders of an animal-abusing company in order to convince them to implement changes that help animals.
