Advocate Resources

While federal and state laws do not sufficiently protect farm animals from cruelty, we are working at all levels of government to change that. We’re helping to pass bans on some of the worst factory farming practices, fighting for greater transparency in agriculture, and working to strengthen existing laws so they keep farm animals safe from suffering. But the voices that speak the loudest to lawmakers belong to their own constituents—you.

Several states have banned one or more forms of extreme confinement, and we are making progress in additional states every year.
Rather than reform destructive practices, corporate agribusiness is pushing "Right to Farm" laws that limit states' power to regulate conditions on farms.
Ag-gag bills are an assault on our rights and threaten to cover up animal abuse and other unethical activities on factory farms.
Learn about our work to improve the animal welfare requirements of the USDA Organic program so they meet consumers’ expectations and farm animals’ needs.
