Karen Davis, founder and president of United Poultry Concerns, told the audience to target the industry as a whole, suggesting they “stop saying ‘stop factory farming’ and say ‘stop all animal farming.’’’

UPC President Karen Davis’s Letter Published in The Progressive, Sept. 2016 (in print & online)

“With no illusions, I am heartened”

With no illusions about the enormous difficulties of animal activism and the plight of animals on the planet, I am heartened by the progress for animals expressed in this Interview including the fact that the progressive community is starting to show a more active concern for and interest in animals and their situation. I hope so. Thank you for publishing this worthwhile discussion.
