"I've enjoyed being able to have very insightful discussions with the smart and passionate peers in my cohort! It's been such an enlightening experience to be able to learn from all different viewpoints and has taught me to be increasingly open minded when it comes to factory farming and all current social justice issues."
Tiffany, High School Student

"It has changed the way I think drastically. It blew me away, and I definitely need to make changes. I had no idea there were so many consequences of meat consumption."
