The Factory Farming Awareness Coalition was founded in Berkeley, California in 2010. FFAC is an educational non-profit committed to empowering people to save the environment, animals, and our own health through our daily food choices.
From social justice to the environment, factory farming is one of the most serious issues facing our planet. FFAC uses grassroots education to spread the idea that every meal we eat can be a powerful form of activism.
FFAC provides holistic, engaging information about factory farming, primarily though a 40-minute presentation which covers the impacts of factory farming on animals, workers, the environment, and public health.
Our presenters speak to high school and college classes, student and community groups, churches and temples, and businesses and non-profits. We have given over 200 presentations to schools and groups across the country, such as Stanford, Yale, the Sierra Club, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
FFAC is also committed to empowering people locally and across the country to educate their communities about this issue. We provide professional public speaker trainings so that others can learn to deliver our presentation. We also make our presentation slides and script available for free to anyone, anywhere who wants to use them.
We recently launched chapters in Portland and Toronto, and aim to spread our model of grassroots education across North America.
