Animal Rights Facts

About Wayne Hsiung:

Wayne Hsiung is the co-founder and lead organizer of Direct Action Everywhere, an international grassroots network of activists founded in the Bay Area of California. He's spent over a decade studying past social justice movements and applying their tactics to the animal rights movement today. He has investigated dozens of farms and slaughterhouses and helped save hundreds of animals from these places of violence. Recently, these Open Rescues have resulted in legal repression, and Wayne now faces felony charges in California, Utah, and North Carolina.
