Extending Our Reach

Thatcher gosling

Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary has been on the frontlines, educating the public about our unjust food system and the animals who suffer within it. From shooting and distributing legislation-inspiring investigative videos in the 1990s, to sitting down with huge media personalities—including Oprah, Larry King, Tucker Carlson, and Martha Stewart—to condemn factory farming, Farm Sanctuary has opened countless hearts and minds over the years with our message of compassion for farm animals.

Now, Farm Sanctuary reaches millions of people each week through op-eds, articles, social media posts, and public awareness campaigns. By meeting people where they are, we provide a safe, open space for people to make meaningful connections between the animals at our Sanctuaries and the food on their plates in favor of deeper and broader-reaching systemic change. By sharing our residents’ tales of survival and sentience, we’re able to tell the hard stories of our broken food system and shine a light on the inherent cruelties of animal agriculture and its collateral damage to the environment, workers, and communities.

Social Media

Farm Sanctuary reaches over a million people each week across our social platforms. Become an advocate for animals, the environment, social justice and public health by following us and sharing our message of compassion.
