About Animal Rights Sweden
Djurens Rätt (Animal Rights Sweden) is the leading animal rights organisation in Scandinavia, with a membership of about 40 000 (to be compared to Sweden's entire population of 10 million).
Animal Rights Sweden was founded in 1882 with the mission to end painful animal experiments. Since the 1970's, the organisation is also dealing with other issues than animal experiments, especially concerning farm animals, fur farming and animal friendly consumer guidance. We are very successful in turning retailers fur free, as well as in guiding tens of thousands of people towards a plant based diet every year out of respect for the animals.
Animal Rights Sweden is an animal rights organisation opposed to all experiments, procedures, production methods and other uses of animals that cause them pain, suffering and distress. Animals are sentient beings entiteled to be treated with respect, and humans have no morally acceptable reasons to expose animals to suffering.
The organisation has a staff of about 30, most of them in the main office in central Stockholm. Animal Rights Sweden has local branches and contacts in about 100 of Sweden's 288 municipalities.
The organisation is led by a board consisting of 9 board members and 3 deputies, elected by representatives from the local branches at annual general meetings. The current president is Camilla Björkbom.
Animal Rights Sweden is a member of Eurogroup for Animals, the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments and the Fur Free Alliance.
