About Their Turn

For decades, animals have been waiting patiently in line behind other marginalized groups fighting for their own rights. With women, African Americans and LGBTs having achieved major successes in their respective battles for equality and social justice, the nation is shifting its attention to the most marginalized and mistreated group of all — animals.  It is Their Turn.

Their Turn is an online animal rights magazine with news, commentary & calls to action. Please feel free to use this content on your own blog or website by clicking the “embed” button at the bottom of each story.
