Tireless Activist Gives Other Students—and Instructors—an Education in Animal Rights

Columbus, Ohio — If you're on the campus of Capital
University and you want to know the go-to person for all things animal rights,
you're looking for first-year student Suzeii Liu. From organizing
protests against McDonald's over its suppliers' cruel treatment of chickens to
founding her own on-campus animal rights group, Liu is always coming up with
new ways to make the world a little kinder. For her outstanding efforts in
behalf of animals of all species, Liu has received a Star Street Teamer
Award from peta2, PETA's youth division.
"Even in a major agricultural state such as Ohio,
Suzeii is making inroads with her message of compassion for animals and the
benefits of going vegan," says peta2 Director Marta Holmberg. "Young
people are leading the animal rights charge, and Suzeii is a trailblazer they
can look to for inspiration."
While some of her classmates flock to McDonald's without
giving it a second thought, the only time you'll find Liu under the golden
arches is with a protest sign in her hand as part of peta2's McCruelty campaign
against the company for refusing to hold its suppliers accountable for abusing
chickens—including scalding the birds to death. One of her proudest
accomplishments was getting more healthy and humane vegan options on the menu
of the university's dining hall. Now, students can chow down on delicious vegan
pizza, soups, and soy beverages. Liu's fight for justice for animals isn't limited
to Columbus. She helped organize protests against the notoriously cruel
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in her hometown of McAllen,
Texas. And this isn't the first time that Liu has gained recognition through
peta2. She has been a finalist in the group's wildly popular Cutest Vegetarian
Alive contest two years in a row.
Team is a group of youth activists dedicated to helping animals through
in-person events, online campaigns, and social media. Liu, who also serves on
Advisory Board, will receive a framed certificate and will be the subject
of a special blog
post on peta2.com.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
