Official Animal Rights March Portland
Let’s unite and inspire!Visit Website
The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by Surge in 2016.
The purpose of the march is to unite the vegan community globally and to inspire vegans to speak up for animals in their everyday lives and get active in their local communities. Started in 2018, the Portland OARM is a community driven event with the mission of taking the animal rights movement directly to the streets in the masses. Last year brought out over 700 compassionate souls and we are excited to see even more this year on August 17, 2019 at 2pm at Shemanski Park.
If you would like to volunteer leading up to or the day of the event, please contact us at
PersonalThe Official Animal Rights March Portland is a community driven event, A group of dedicated vegans that make this event possible along with the hundreds of attendees.
Founded in 2016, Surge is a grassroots animal rights organisation determined to create a world where compassion towards all non-human animals is the norm. Our aim is to spread awareness through campaigns, filmmaking and investigative work. Surge is committed to positive community building, teamwork and the abolition of animal use.
Our vision is a world in which all animals are free from human-inflicted oppression and violence, our vision is therefore of a vegan world. Surge focuses on veganism as we believe that it is through veganism that we’ll collectively end the oppression of non-human animals.
Our philosophy is that change comes through education, campaigning and community building. Through our many projects and operations, our mission is to push animal rights forward into mainstream public thinking, as well as encouraging unity through community-based activism.
