Hope Bohanec and Justin Van Kleeck, Humane Hoax Online Summit
As we successfully expose the animal agriculture industry for its cruelty and environmental impact, the clever industry marketers keep reacting with more “humane” labels, more small-scale tall tales, and more feel-good falsehoods. It has never been more important to educate on the truth behind the industry lies. Bringing together a knowledgeable panel of experts on this issue, we hope to expose animal agriculture’s humane-washing with fresh insight into the humane hoax. Please join us in January for this exciting free event!
