Carnism causes extensive suffering. Animal agriculture is responsible for the unnecessary slaughter of 72 billion land animals and between one and three trillion fish and other aquatic animals worldwide per year, and it is a major contributor to environmental degradation, human disease, and human rights violations. However, the majority of people who eat animals are unaware that they are contributing to such destruction.
At Beyond Carnism, we believe that people need and deserve to know the truth about carnism, so they can make their food choices freely-because without awareness, there is no free choice.
Beyond Carnism seeks to empower nonvegan consumers and vegan advocates through awareness raising and training, to help create a more just and compassionate world for all beings, human and nonhuman alike.
