We cordially invite you to sign up for our Humane Hoax Chicken Webinar Saturday, September 12th for a day dedicated to our feathered friends. Learn from experts about the many issues that impact chickens – the most exploited land animals on Earth, accounting for 97 percent of the farmed animals bred and killed for food. For every pig who is slaughtered, 60 chickens are killed. For every cow who is slaughtered, 190 chickens are killed. Each year, approximately 35 million cows are killed in the United States, yet 35 million chickens are killed every day. It is critical that animal advocates focus their efforts on the plight of these sensitive and complex birds.

We have a prestigious lineup of speakers for our Chicken Webinar, including UPC president, Karen Davis, PhD, who will enlighten us about the hidden truths of the chicken meat and egg industry as well as the humane hoax of “cage-free” and “free-range” eggs. We will learn about chicken rescue and caregiving from an expert with decades of experience, Mary Britton Clouse of Chicken Run Rescue. The webinar will feature a talk by attorney Nora Constance Marino about the ritual of Kaporos, in which thousands of chickens are killed in the streets every fall. Justin Van Kleeck of Triangle Chicken Advocates will address the popularity of backyard chicken-keeping and the resulting tragedy for roosters. A panel of devoted activists will wrap up the day ready to inspire you with ideas on how to take effective action for chickens.

Join us for this first ever webinar dedicated to chickens! Learn about these beautiful birds, why advocates should prioritize them, and how you can help to protect them.
