Factory Farms: Harming Animals, the Environment, and Communities of Color Webinar

Industrial animal agriculture generates immeasurable animal suffering, extreme pollution, and environmental injustice. But government at all levels declines to regulate this industry, and even passes laws to shield it from legal liability and public scrutiny. In this webinar, Christine Ball-Blakely will illustrate the consequences of this reality by discussing the impacts of factory farms in North Carolina, which are disproportionately sited in low-income communities of color. You will learn about the carefully-carved legal loopholes that allow these factory farms to operate almost entirely unfettered by protections for animals, the environment, or communities, and about how impacted communities—and others—are fighting back.
