Moving into May, we are celebrating two milestones for United Poultry
Concerns. This month we recognize
International Respect for Chickens Day
and also the one-year anniversary of the
Hope for the Animals Podcast.
One year ago, life was drastically changing and our in-person outreach events
were all abruptly cancelled due to the pandemic. Meanwhile, the chickens
continued to suffer, so we knew we had to do something. We moved our
message online and created the Hope for the Animals Podcast. In the past
year, our podcast has grown considerably and has reached over 6,000
downloads in at least 15 countries.
To help us celebrate, today on the podcast we have UPC’s founder and president, Karen Davis. Karen dives deep into the ethical philosophies that she has developed over four decades. She talks with Hope about the origin of International Respect for Chickens Day, the importance of being conscious of our language when speaking and writing about farmed animals, UPC’s innovative sanctuary aviary, and the importance of recognizing and promoting Chickens’ Earthrights.
Happy one-year anniversary to Hope for the Animals Podcast and Happy International Respect for Chickens Month!
