Living One is a free webinar series where presenters from around the world share their vision of a future in which humans and other Animals live as one community in peace, dignity and freedom. Living One asks the question: We know what’s wrong, but what does “right” look like?

Restoring “Poultry” from How They are Used to Who They Really Are

Karen Davis, PhD will discuss the suffering and abuses of chickens in farming operations, sacrificial “atonement” rituals, and farm supply businesses like Tractor Supply Company, and explain how we can restore birds lucky enough to be rescued to a sense of their true selves instead of the “lesser beings” to which abusers seek to reduce them. This project extrapolates to a larger vision and undertaking of rescue.
