Programs for Individuals

Spread the word about FFAC’s free educational programs on factory farming’s devastating impacts— on climate change, natural resource depletion, animal suffering, immigrant and worker exploitation, and public health. 

Your Social Justice Organization

Factory farming has devastating impacts on marginalized populations, from immigrants who work in slaughterhouses and meat-packing plants to residents of rural communities that border agricultural facilities. A free FFAC program, either in person or over Zoom, informs your members about one of our most exploitative systems. Your FFAC speaker provides relevant, up-to-date information.

Your Environmental Group

Animal agriculture is one of the most destructive industries on the planet. If your group focuses on climate change, an FFAC speaker explains in detail how animal farming causes a huge percentage of anthropogenic GHG emissions, and why scientists debate the exact amount. If air or water pollution is your primary focus, FFAC educates your members about the animal waste and fertilizer that leaks into our groundwater and the toxic fumes that factory farms and slaughterhouses release into the air. If depletion of natural resources your club’s primary concern, an FFAC regional director presents science-backed data on
