Why We are a
Vegan Organization

Veganism is a joyful way of life that embraces compassion towards all beings, not just humans. Vegans eat entirely plant-based diets, refraining from eating animals and animal products which require animals to suffer and harm the environment. They also typically abstain from wearing and using products made from animals.

The profound suffering created by oppressive systems, structures and institutions, is something we seek to impact and change, in whatever ways we can- from the food we eat, to the work we fund. Furthermore, our global system of animal agriculture has been shown to be by far the greatest contributor to the environmental destruction of our planet, from water use required to rainforest destroyed, to greenhouse gases released in the process of raising animals for food.

What we put on our forks and on our plates turn them into either weapons of mass destruction and violence or tools of mass compassion, depending on the choices we make.

In partnership with Farm Animal Rights Movement (F.A.R.M.), Veracity Films created this video to show the horrors and cruelty of the meat, egg, and dairy industries. Over 10 Billion farmed animals are killed each year for food, in the U.S. alone. Let’s stop animal abuse! By going vegan, you can save up to 100 animals per year! And the benefits don’t stop there!
