Our Values

Knowledge

We only share information from peer-reviewed sources and regularly update our materials. We are sensitive to indigenous and non-Western perspective.

Self-Awareness

We acknowledge our unearned privileges and strive to amplify minoritized and oppressed voices.

Agility

Our programs are informed by current thought on behavior change, and we are prepared to change course in light of scientific advances and societal changes.

Compassion

We oppose the institution of factory farming, but have compassion for individiuals who (willingly or not) participate in the system. We meet people where they are, recognizing that changing attitudes and behaviors is a long-term process. We support our team and others doing this emotionally challenging work.

Collaboration

We can best serve FFAC's mission by working together. We always strive to complement existing resources rather than duplicate them. We recognize that systems of oppression are interconnected and affect both human and non-human life. We invest in meaningful relationships with each other and with other organizations and groups advocating for social and environmental justice.
