The Humane Hoax Online Summit 2019

Join us for the first annual Humane Hoax Online Summit! We have an awesome line-up of speakers for our two day event. And the best part? You can attend in your PJ’s!


Faced with growing cultural criticism of large-scale animal agriculture, corporations, manufacturers, and consumers alike are turning towards so-called “humane” methods of animal farming and seeking out alternative labels on their animal products. These falsehoods and myths–the Humane Hoax–range from large farms with thousands of animals to your neighbor’s backyard, yet exploitation and suffering are omnipresent in every method of husbandry. The Humane Hoax Online Summit brings together experts on a wide variety of topics in order to expose the Humane Hoax in all its forms. Please join us in January for this exciting event!
