Building a New Animal Freedom Movement

Pax Fauna exists to bring about a Nonviolent grassroots mass movement to end animal agriculture. With cutting-edge research, we can make the movement smarter, louder, and more collaborative than ever.

New Strategies

The time is ripe for a disruptive mass movement to seize the narrative about animal agriculture. We’re expanding the movement’s capacity for creative protest, canvassing, and guerrilla marketing.

New Messaging

We're combining modern best practices in political narrative with our own focus groups and testing to develop a new, more persuasive story about animal freedom.

New Ways of Organizing

We’re bringing community organizing for animals into the 21st century with everything from new digital tools to Nonviolent Communication.
