I am the biggest fan of PCRM. Their 21 day vegan kickstart got me on the road to a healthy vegan lifestyle with meal plans and forums
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

Actually ..vegan bodybuilding is my favorite organization because it proves vegans dont lose anything ..but actually gain as many benefits as they desire . The forum in general is a staple of mine for many references. The site is level headed..practical ..and factual based ..its a great place to avoid all the psuedo science/new age crap that give vegans a bad name !!!

OrganicAthlete cuz they promote a plant-based diet through sports, both very important things in my life. Thanks to OA I've had some great times in different parts of the world. Great I got to meet so many nice people sharing the same ideals.

www.veganbodybuilding.com for supporting vegan athletes and showing the world that vegans CAN be fit, strong and muscular.
We can become a voice against animal abuse without even using words - Vegan Bodybuilding helps us to use our bodies as proof to the world that exploitation of animals is not necessary to achieve fitness goals, despite what is generally assumed in the industry.
New vegans, or even meat eaters interested in making the switch are able to access the website for unlimited free help, tips and support from the community here, and hopefully inspire more and more people to live more passionately and work towards ending animal cruelty.

Also, Animals Australia for their amazing work promoting animal rights, exposing animal exploitation and making our nation more aware of what really happens in farms, factories, abattoirs and live exports though news reports, social media, radio, online and printed media.

Cleveland Animal Rights Alliance.

We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment of life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing

My favorite organization is Compassionate Action for Animals based out of Minneapolis. www.exploreveg.org. They are one of the most financially conscious organizations I've ever been a part of - they make every $ count in big ways by doing local and national outreach and by running sites such as vegweb.com.

This website and forum right now is pretty high up there but for local information and organization it's http://bostonvegan.org/. They educate newcomers and welcome everyone who is either interested or have been vegan and supporting animal rights for a long time. They are simple and straight forward and not preachy. I hate preachy:).

Farm Sanctuary!! Gene Baur has done some amazing work~ his book, Farm Sanctuary was what prompted me to drop dairy completely... prior to reading it, I had no idea of the cruelty involved in the industry. The nice part about the book is that he also includes stories of rescued animals, giving insight into their unique, loving personalities and how, as ambassadors at the sanctuaries themselves (there are two) they continue to reach the hearts of visitors. After a visit to the New York location, the one friend who was an adamant carnivore on the ride up, was vegan by the time we left :)
Not to mention their tireless legal campaigns~

I like this website! The book Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness is inspiring as it explains how living compassionately and healthy is the best way to advocate for the animals by example! :)

Boston Vegan association because they have a great group going there and their comprehensive abolitionist vegan
Literature is brilliant and they send me some (kg's!) to the uk free of change. How amazing, I just love groups that are just interested in educating about veganism.
