(FARM) Farm Animal Reform Movement

FARM’s mission is to end the use of animals for food. In support of this mission, we operate on several levels.
On the grassroots level, which accounts for the majority of our efforts, we engage likely target audiences, according to their interests, and nudge them along the vegan path. Behind the scenes, we develop resources that make the vegan lifestyle more “doable.” We also support the animal rights movement and grassroots groups around the world.
