Our Advisory Board member Dr Anita Krajnc has been covered in Washington Post, Guardian, CTV, CBC, and Globe and Mail among more international media channels for her ground-breaking work against speciesism and contesting criminalization of her compassion for animals. See details below. As a well-known activist, she has been key to the growth of CMCS since its launch on August 28, 2013.

Today, we are 3 years old.


We wanted to take this opportunity to say that we are incredibly grateful to all our supporters and sponsors for their contributions to celebrity studies, social issues, and media outreach.

And we have more to do
