Factory farming is slowly but surely tightening its stranglehold on our food system. In the United States, this disastrous practice violates the rights of people and animals. Now, more than ever, change is necessary on behalf of animals, the environment, public health, and community and worker justice.
Whether it’s the extermination of male chicks in the egg industry, calves raised for veil living inside a crate, farmworkers with unfit working conditions, or communities exposed to dangerous chemicals—every living being trapped within the American factory farming system has a story, a violation of their rights, and for most animals a cruel end to their short and painful lives. While these practices are inhumane and unacceptable, they’re only a symptom of a larger problem—one that demands the attention of congress.
Animals raised for food, farmers, and communities need the Farm System Reform Act.
Introduced by US Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) the Farm System Reform Act seeks to:
- Restore power to independent farmers who make up the backbone of the US food supply, helping them stay on their land and out of bankruptcy
- Transition the US food system to a more sustainable model that allocates billions of dollars to help farmers transition to a system that does not rely on industrial animal agriculture
- Place an immediate moratorium on new or expanding factory farms and ban the operation of factory farms by 2040.
US Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reaffirmed their opposition to the factory farming system and introduced legislation to end it. If passed, the Farm System Reform Act would place an immediate moratorium on new or expanding factory farms, ban the operation of factory farms by 2040, and allocate billions of dollars to help farmers transition away from industrial animal agriculture. If we’re going to build a more just and sustainable food system, it will require embracing big ideas like those in this bill. But these senators can’t undo decades worth of factory farm intensification on their own—they need the help of your representatives, too.
