Pit Bulls are for Lovers are PROUD sponsors of the One Million Pibble March on DC coming up this May! The event is hosted by activist and comedian Rebecca Corry, who is energetic, intelligent, sarcastic, humorous and highly motivated to fight for what is right. Rebecca is President of the Stand Up for Pits Foundation that she formed in honor of her rescue Pit Bull Angel. Despite all odds, she has risen in opposition to challenge BSL, breed discrimination, dog fighting and animal abuse. While critics have raised their eyebrows about pit bulls, she has dedicated her career to raising awareness and inspiring other activists to resist the onslaught that has been created against them.
The One Million Pibble March on DC will be the first national convergence on the Capitol of its’ kind. The intention of the March is to increase political and social awareness about breed laws and the underground world of dog fighting. This is a much needed effort to help combat the over population, abuse, neglect and senseless killing of pit bulls. While Rescues who protect and re-home pit bulls are fantastic, without changing the laws and creating an environment safe and sane for all dogs, the pressure on these amazing groups will never be alleviated. A peaceful, grassroots approach such as the Million Pibble March will be a huge step in the right direction to gain national attention to the unfairness and injustice pit bulls and their owners have endured for far too long. Lobbying to change the laws is paramount to the progress we seek as pit bull advocates!
If you are interested in attending this March in person, please read more about it HERE. If you are a pit bull owner or animal activist or a sympathizer to the plight for pit bulls, your attendance is highly encouraged. If you cannot be there physically for whatever reason, please consider holding a small rally or vigil locally in unity with the National rally.
Also, events of this magnitude are NOT inexpensive projects. They cost big time! That is why we have chosen to sponsor the march to demonstrate our sincerity. For every garment we sell, a portion will be donated to the march and whatever else we can afford to donate. Pit Bulls are for Lovers merchandise is not only a way to promote the breed, raise awareness, or to look awesome, but also to help with actual efforts to end the madness against pit bulls. We feel that our business combined with our philosophy of social change are powerful ammunition to attack injustice wherever it may roam… and we simply cannot prevail without dedicated groups and individuals who are willing to put everything on the line for what they believe in.
You can also donate directly to the march by clicking HERE. No dollar amount is too small, but keep in mind we have to act and fight back if we want the future for our pit bulls to be a bright and promising one. Nothing will change without resistance. Nobody will do the work for us so it is our responsibility to do what is right and do all that we can. If you are opposed to BSL, opposed to dog fighting, and opposed to discrimination, then this is your chance to embrace real change and real goals. Being angry about the injustices we face is a good start, but it is merely half the battle. So please donate today and plan to attend!
Never underestimate the power of social change.
