Animal agriculture causes extensive harm to animals, humans, and the environment. As the only organization focusing on the roots of the problem — the psychology that drives people to support, rather than oppose, animal agriculture — Beyond Carnism is filling a critical niche in the animal advocacy movement.
And, through our Center for Effective Vegan Advocacy, we’re helping to build a more impactful, resilient, and powerful global vegan movement.
Beyond Carnism is a US-based, international organization dedicated to exposing and transforming carnism, the invisible belief system that conditions people to eat certain animals.
We believe that meaningful social change requires a two-pronged strategic approach, which entails weakening the oppressive system (carnism) and strengthening the system that challenges it (veganism). For this reason, all our programs are designed to decrease the power of carnism and increase the power of veganism, through awareness-raising and training.
We create innovative video campaigns about carnism (which have won awards and gone viral), and, through our Center for Effective Vegan Advocacy, we work to increase the impact of vegan advocacy worldwide and create a more unified and resilient vegan movement. We provide on-site and online trainings, organizational consulting, and leadership support at low to no cost, by highly experienced trainers.
