Ending Factory Farming

Billions of animals are farmed for their meat, milk, eggs, skin, fur, or feathers around the world. The vast majority are confined to factory farms and subjected to extreme stress, pain, fear, and cruelty.

Billions of chickens and millions of cows, pigs, turkeys, and other animals endure a tortuous, short life in factory farms each year. And it is estimated that by 2050 if nothing changes, farmed animal production will continue increasing and be at twice the scale it was in 2000.

Millions of minks, foxes, crocodiles, ostriches, and other animals are farmed at massive scale and slaughtered for their fur, skin, or feathers. The global fashion industry perpetuates the demand for animal materials by presenting them as luxury and emblematic of status.

Its time to rethink the system.

We are campaigning for transformation at every stage. And we know change is possible.
