Dr. Melanie Joy Launches Carnism Awareness and Action Network (CAAN)

Dr. Melanie Joy Launches Carnism Awareness and Action Network (CAAN)

Dr. Melanie Joy recently announced the launch of Carnism Awareness and Action Network (CAAN). CAAN’s mission is to raise awareness of and challenge carnism, the invisible belief system that conditions people to eat certain animals.

CAAN is the first organization to focus exclusively on the psychological and social underpinnings of eating animals. It is also the first organization to:

  • Focus on the roots of and the belief system that enables animal agriculture.
  • Frame eating animals as a social justice issue, not just a matter of personal ethics.
  • Focus on direct institutional change.
  • Provide psychological support to advocates working to transform the system.

The CAAN website includes resources to educate the public about carnism, materials to help activists spread the word, information about Dr. Joy’s international carnism awareness speaking tour, and current information about the global spread of carnism awareness.

To learn more about the movement or get involved, visit carnism.com. Follow CAAN on Facebook or Twitter @CAANmedia for updates and to help spread the word!

Also be sure to check out the thought-provoking articles Dr. Joy has published on One Green Planet.
