Justice for Animals began with a desire and need to better help animals in the Pittsburgh area. After years of consistent animal rights efforts in our city, JFA evolved into an organization to get others involved and excited about animal rights!
JFA has helped and supported many legislative initiates in Pittsburgh towards protecting animals. We have organized many demonstrations around the city including the anti-circus, carriage horse rides, fur, deer cull and roadside zoos.
JFA also brought Pittsburgh its first VegFest- now in its 3rd year, encouraging folks to shop crafts and art in their own community, and to try local vegan food they otherwise would not know about. VegFest also supports small businesses and local music, along with many animal welfare non-profits.
Another project we work continuously on is Meatless Monday Pittsburgh, an initiative in schools and local workplace cafeterias to bring more plant based items to the public.
