Northwest Animal Rights Network
In 1986 Northwest Animal Rights Network was founded to galvanize the local pro-animal community, beginning with $600 and a single part-time staffer. NARN has since grown to become the largest grassroots animal activist group in the Pacific Northwest, and one of the most active such groups in the country. NARN is involved with all aspects of animal welfare and advocacy, including an emphasis on promoting vegetarianism and veganism. NARN provides an extensive website and publishes a weekly on-line newsletter with circulation to over 2,000 people.
