Hi! I am a co-founder of The Simple Heart Initiative, an animal rights nonprofit using open rescue to accelerate the movement for species equality.
I think a lot about effective animal advocacy, especially in the contexts of social movements and politics.
Previously, I was president of the animal advocacy club at UC Berkeley and the field director for a candidate for mayor of Berkeley.

Open rescue and undercover investigations of factory farms and other animal abusing facilities
I've felt the same sense of rage and sadness at the casual portrayal of mass casualty events for farmed animals. Trucks with thousands of chickens flipping over on highways. Hurricane floods in North Carolina drowning tens of thousands of trapped pigs while the companies collect insurance money. The occasional barn fire that kills a hundred thousand but barely makes the news.
Every time. No injuries reported.
This is a powerful and relatable piece. Thank you.
Wonderful name. Congratulations, full send!
