Our Team

GMFER is guided by a team of dedicated individuals who have a passion to deliver meaningful outcomes for animals and humans.

Our core team believes in justice for animals and humans alike; a global grass roots movement that amplifies the voices of indigenous peoples is at the heart of both justice for the human and the non-human. Our vision aims at building human communities that see non-human communities as deserving of justice.
