We are the Creators of AASB
The foundation of Animals Are Sentient Beings, Inc. is based in the generosity of many human beings and in the values and love of my parents. Some people who have given a lot of time, attention, and support to the start up of Animals Are Sentient Beings, Inc. include Sandia Zolotow, Maura Stumpf, Craig Akira Fujita, Bill Colangali, Patti Levin, Mary Stewart, Lia Spiliotis, Arlene Schuler, and Willa Seybolt. I am incredibly grateful for their help and support.
The people whom have especially influenced my desire to want to start such an organization include Zeph and Mary Stewart, my father and sister. Their appreciation of other creatures, their intuitive clarity as to what is wrong and right behavior with regard to treatment of other creatures and the planet, and their ability to think outside the construction of culture have helped me grow my mind and listen to my heart.
Thank you to everyone, to my mother for her integrity, and to both her and my brother for their love and support. I also have many friends who have responded to my desperate concerns about animals and have been open to learning and changing, as well as simply listening to me and my hopes, dreams, and heartbreak for the planet.
