Join celebrities Alec Baldwin, Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Edie Falco, Sia, Alan Cumming, Lisa Edelstein, Richard Marx, and Daisy Fuentes in taking the turkey-free holiday pledge! In partnership with Farm Sanctuary, thousands have joined in celebrating a compassionate Thanksgiving.

The pledge is as follows, “I object to animal cruelty, environmental destruction, the exploitation of slaughterhouse workers, and the deep wounds inflicted upon rural communities by the factory farming industry. As such, I will join Farm Sanctuary in celebrating a compassionate Thanksgiving by leaving turkey off my dinner plate.”
