Dear friends,

At a time when more people are questioning our right to kill and inflict pain on animals, the humane hoax serves to protect the status quo and reassure eaters that they can have their meat and their ethics too. We know that's not true, so this weekend I will be joining an excellent roster of speakers to expose the fallacies of the humane hoax.

The first Humane Hoax Online Summit is not to be missed–and you can join us from the comfort of your home! From the organizers: 'Faced with growing cultural criticism of large-scale animal agriculture, corporations, manufacturers, and consumers alike are turning towards so-called "humane" methods of animal farming and seeking out alternative labels on their animal products. These falsehoods and myths--the Humane Hoax--range from large farms with thousands of animals to your neighbor's backyard, yet exploitation and suffering are omnipresent in every method of husbandry.'

Check out the summit's exciting schedule and register here.

Happy 2019,
