Many things made me become a vegetarian, among them the higher food yield as a solution to world hunger. - John Denver
Katie Cantrell is a UC Berkeley graduate and former president of the Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy. She founded the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition in 2010 to educate people about the ecological and social justice hazards of industrial meat production in the United States. Katie has delivered over 150 presentations on factory farming, and her presentation has been used as a resource by food justice activists across the country.
The Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC) is an educational non-profit dedicated to empowering consumers to help animals, the environment, and our own health through our daily food choices. FFAC's 30-minute presentation provides a holistic overview of the many impacts of factory farming. The presentation is a must-watch for people who care about people, for people who care about the environment, and for people who like seeing cute animal pictures.
Since its inception in 2010, FFAC has trained 40 presenters to give presentations to classes, churches, community organizations, and businesses. FFAC also won free advertising on San Francisco's public transit system, which brought the message of Meatless Mondays to over 300,000 people per day.
