Free from Harm requires funding for its four main programs to continue operating with a core budget into 2023.
- Mass Education/Outreach. Since 2009, Free from Harm has been building and proliferating a wide range of vegan and animal rights content to a global online audience. Our body of work is now spread across 550+ web pages and countless social media posts. Beyond education, supporters and the general public are frequently prompted to take calls to action, turning their passive interest into active participation.
- Plant-Based Food System. Our Koch Foods pressure campaign targets the 5th largest chicken meat producer in the US and its CEO, Joseph Grendys, one of the richest Americans and most powerful figures in our food system. Our long-term goal of transitioning Koch Foods to a plant-based chicken producer will have huge implications for the urgent shift to a plant-based food system needed to mitigate the worsening climate, environmental and animal crisis. Incremental wins and milestones toward that goal will sustain and inspire the growth of public support and media coverage.
- Humanewashing. Humanewashing is perhaps the most effective industry fiction to make consumers feel better about eating animals and ignoring their suffering and the impacts on our planet. Help us expose Jidori Chicken’s humane fraud which advertises as “the Kobe beef of the poultry industry” and “cruelty free,” commanding premium prices from its high-end restaurant and hotel clients. Investigators have documented some of the worst animal abuse at Jidori’s LA slaughterhouse we’ve ever seen in the last three years. Our campaign aims to educate Jidori’s high profile customers and urge them to switch to plant-based chicken alternatives. The campaign also pressures key public officials to enforce the laws on animal cruelty, sanitation and consumer fraud to the fullest extent against Jidori.
- Slaughterhouse Bans. Help us crack down on the slaughterhouse industry wherever it rears its ugly head. We are fighting for the defeat of newly proposed slaughterhouses as well as restrictions on existing slaughterhouses. Our legislative initiatives and pressure campaigns continue to multiply and succeed, from Chicago to NYC and LA and as far as Uganda!
