Globally, animal agriculture uses 83% of the world’s farmland, but only produces 18% of our calories and 37% of our protein.

10 billion animals are slaughtered each year in the US. 99% of those animals are raised on factory farms.
The total greenhouse gas emissions produced by animal agriculture are comparable to that of all cars, trucks, busses, and planes combined.
Plant-based food systems require fewer resources and produce fewer greenhouse-gas emissions.
We Tell the Truth About Factory Farming
FFAC has been to my classroom a number of times over the past two years. Their presentations are always thought provoking, engaging and very well presented. They are extremely knowledgeable, and the presentation style is both passionate and compassionate. I plan to invite FFAC back into my classroom again and again."

We're Building the Movement to Create Just and Sustainable Food Systems
Through our focus on social justice and factory farming, I realized that environmental issues are just a fraction of all of the issues with factory farming and there's so much more to know. FFAC has definitely inspired me to 'be the change I wish to see in the world.'"

Together, We are Ending Factory Farming
This presentation really showed me exactly how destructive our consumption of meat is to the environment. I also did not know the scale of factory farming in the country. It really inspired me to make change in my day to day life."

You make it possible for us to share the truth—to educate people about the devastating impacts of factory farming on animals, people, and the planet.
The Humane Methods of Slaughter Act of 1958 was passed with the intention of placing regulations on slaughter practices for animals in factory farms in an effort to make them more “humane.” However, over the decades it has become glaringly obvious that the HMSA is not doing what it is meant to do and between the legal loopholes and the inconsistent enforcement, the Act has become just another piece of legislation that has failed to protect animals suffering in factory farms.
