Friends, supporters, and allies,
As we pause and look back at the first half of the year, I am amazed at what we’ve been able to accomplish together for farmed animals.
The last few months have brought unexpected and unprecedented challenges. In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Animal Equality launched a worldwide campaign and petition calling for the immediate closure of cruel and dangerous wet markets, the suspected origin of COVID-19. The petition to the United Nations has already received nearly 500,000 signatures. We’ve released four groundbreaking investigations in India, China, and Spain. Additionally, our corporate outreach secured 13 policy commitments from companies that will impact nearly 3.5 million hens and chickens each year.
Our work on behalf of farmed animals would not be possible without your support. With your help, we are impacting the lives of hundreds of millions of farmed animals around the world and will continue to make strides in the months to come. Thank you for your ongoing support!
President, Animal Equality
