Q&A with Leah Edgerton, Executive Director of Animal Charity Evaluators

I support three policies regarding factory farming: https://twitter.com/marsxrobertson/status/1282612364844707840


1️⃣ Remove agricultural subsidies

2️⃣ Charge for externalities such as CO2eq emissions (methane)

3️⃣ Ban it outright

Why "animal welfare" is a thing?

Just because some groups advocate for welfare improvements as a way to get their foot in the door with the public or corporations doesn’t mean that they have any desire to legitimize the use of animals. Rather, they believe, as has been my personal experience during my time in grassroots activism, that people are more willing to listen to your points and arguments if you meet them where they stand.

I believe that radical approach is much better.
