Through education, Animal Equality works to reduce animal suffering and change people’s perceptions of the world’s most exploited animals.
We have the power to choose kindness over cruelty every time we sit down to eat. Online or on the ground, our outreach team is encouraging people all around the world to reduce or eliminate their meat consumption and replace it with delicious plant-based foods.
iAnimal: exposing secretive factory farms
Animal Equality is putting technology to work for animals. Our team has filmed with 360-degree cameras to produce films on the lives of pigs, chickens, and cows. Compassionate celebrities, including Tony Kanal, Kat Von D, and Evanna Lynch, have lent their voices to support iAnimal. The iAnimal films have been seen by tens of thousands of people at universities such as Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, Oxford, UCLA, and Florida State University, and at important events such as political conferences and film festivals. They have also gained international media coverage through major outlets such as NPR, the New York Times, and the Guardian.
A plant-based journey
Animal Equality’s Love Veg project provides people with the information and motivation they need to enjoy a plant-based lifestyle. Love Veg meets people where they are in their journey and offers them insider tips, shopping guides and delicious recipes. Animal Equality also provides a newsletter-based support system to facilitate people’s transition to a plant-based diet. These newsletters have proven to be an effective catalyst for inspiring change.
Outreach creates awareness
Traditional offline methods are also effective at inspiring important behavior changes. Our dedicated team of volunteers is an important part of these outreach efforts. They help organize street screenings in towns and cities across the world and have distributed leaflets to over a quarter million people.
The power of social media
Social media enables our message to travel further and allows us to connect with a diverse audience. Creative and engaging content empowers people to make better decisions for animals. Videos, such as our chicken hatchery investigation video which has been viewed online by more than 75 million people, enable more people than ever before to witness the cruelty and learn about cruelty-free alternatives.
Taking the voices of animals further
Animal Equality aims to share its values of compassion, determination, and effectiveness on a global scale. Our international team participates in conferences and talks all around the world speaking on behalf of defenseless animals.
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
Helping farmed animals is now easier than it has ever been. Today, a trip to the supermarket reveals there are more cruelty-free plant-based options than ever before. Leaving animals off your plate will spare hundreds of them from a lifetime of misery, and it will help the planet and benefit your health.
