Our Theory of Change

We are committed to ending factory farming and wildlife exploitation worldwide. Forever.

We aim to transform the systems that support and underpin the continued exploitation of animals and build a new world in which all animals are protected from cruelty and suffering.

We will rewrite the story for animals by: 

  • EXPOSING how animals are suffering as a result of our industries and actions
  • PROMOTING animal-free and animal-friendly businesses and experiences
  • CATALYZING innovative and transformative solutions
  • BANNING exploitative industries through progressive policies
  • MOBILIZING advocates to make change for animals
