As the founder and former Executive Director of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition, Katie Cantrell has spent the last decade leading workshops at top universities, government agencies, and Fortune 500 corporations. After reading Eating Animals in 2010, Katie was inspired to found Factory Farming Awareness Coalition to address factory farming holistically, as a threat to the environment, social justice, animal welfare, and public health. Her materials have been used as a resource by food justice activists across the world.
Katie is currently the Co-Director of Greener by Default. She graduated from UC Berkeley in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and a minor in Russian literature.
