Compassion in World Farming was founded in 1967 in England by a British farmer, Peter Roberts who was alarmed by the changes in farming taking place and today it’s a leading farm animal welfare organization. Today Compassion in World Farming campaigns peacefully on a global level to end all cruel factory farming practices. Their US office is based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Compassion in World Farming has recently expanded its advocacy to include all areas that are negatively impacted by factory farming, including: the environment, human health, community and workers’ justice. Compassion USA is committed to reforming a broken food and farming system and introducing a more humane sustainable farming system. They want to end factory farming not just because of the impact on farm animals but because of the negative impact on farmers and workers’ health, food security and the environment.
Ninety-five percent of all factory farmed animals in the USA are chickens raised for meat (broilers) negatively affecting nearly 9 billion animals per year. Compassion USA recently launched the Georgians for Pastured Poultry, which focuses on improving the conditions of broiler factory farming in Georgia, the state which is the largest producer of broilers in the country. You too can help in stopping animal cruelty on farms by taking part in campaigns or donating funds. For more information, click here.
