Tracey Glover, Awakening Respect and Compassion for all Sentient Beings

With a long history of living a cruelty-free lifestyle and volunteering with animal rights organizations, Tracey Glover decided to start her own animal welfare organization.

Operating out of Mobile, Alabama, the mission of Awakening Respect and Compassion for all Sentient Beings (ARC) is to raise awareness about human-caused animal suffering, to inspire compassion for all sentient beings, and to create a more sustainable and compassionate world.

Rooted in the principles of interbeing, interconnection and compassion as taught by the Buddha, ARC recognizes the values of right speech and looking deeply to see the root causes of cruelty, suffering, and ignorance. They aim to raise awareness about the capacity of other species to suffer and educate people about humane and sustainable alternatives to the current treatment of animals as commodities.

Tracey said she “understands the importance of engaging the public in positive, peaceful, and compassionate ways. Our tactics will always reflect this foundation of peace and mindful compassion.”

The funds from The Pollination Project will be used for supplies for their upcoming event. For more information on ARC, follow them on Facebook.
