Factory farms, aka CAFOs (Confined Animal Feeding Operations) represent everything that is wrong with our food system today. They:
– endanger public health by polluting our local air and waterways
– release harmful emissions that accelerate the climate crisis
– enable further consolidation of the meat industry, and
– supply to meatpacking facilities that are exploitative and hazardous to working people.
That’s why the eighth plank of HEAL’s Platform for Real Food calls for phasing out factory farming!
Join us to hear how representatives from ASPCA, Land Stewardship Project, the North Carolina Environmental Justice Network, are organizing against factory farms and changing policies to move us towards a future where sustainable animal agriculture is the norm.
