ASP was founded to fight fear and hatred; of snakes, yes, but as Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We recognize that until all humans are treated with respect, our mission cannot be realized. Thus, we support all who promote compassion and oppose fear and hate.
Our path forward is working together to help those who need it most. While we continue our advocacy for snakes, we’re listening and learning for ways we can support the fight to end systemic racism.
We envision a world where ALL are respected and appreciated instead of feared and hated.
