While CARA acknowledges the egregious cruelty of the fur industry, we believe in the Gandhian practice of nonviolence and nonparticipation when it comes to injustices. We in turn pursue nonviolent education to speak out against these injustices.
One of the best examples of creative nonviolent education in action can be seen in the award-winning Tribe of Heart documentary THE WITNESS. In this acclaimed film, Eddie Lama explains how he feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals and bring his message of compassion to the streets of New York. With humor and sincerity, Eddie tells the story of his remarkable change in consciousness.

"The Witness is one man's truth that cries out for mass exposure...may be the most important and persuasive film about animals ever made." ~ Howard Rosenberg, Los Angeles Times
