How Are You Helping Farmed Animals?Posted by Megan Backus, ALDF's Media Relations Associate on November 12th, 2009
Back in September, we launched our Support Better Laws for Farmed Animals Cause on Facebook, bringing awareness to the fact that there are no federal laws governing the conditions in which farmed animals are raised. Farmed animals—those raised for the meat, dairy, and egg industries—are among the most abused in the United States, in numbers that are so staggering as to be almost incomprehensible.
For one week only, we offered to send you a stack of our new Farmed Animal and the Law brochures, and the response was incredible! We made a few suggestions on what to do with the brochures—hand them out at events, display them at supporting merchants or conveniently leave them on the coffee table for your meat-eating housemates to peruse—but we would love to know how you spread the word! If you received our Farmed Animal and the Law brochures, please comment and tell us your story.
