The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

 

The Natural Resources Defense Council's (NRDC) purpose is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. They work to restore the integrity of the elements that sustain life - air, land, and water - and to defend endangered natural places. They seek to establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth as the central ethical imperatives of human society. NRDC affirms the integral place of human beings in the environment. They strive to protect nature in ways that advance the long-term welfare of present and future generations. They work to foster the fundamental right of all people to have a voice in decisions that affect their environment.



Farm Sanctuary

 

Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. They have rescued thousands of animals and cared for them at their sanctuaries in New York and California. They educate millions of people about the animals’ plight and the effects of factory farming on our health and environment. Farm Sanctuary advocates for laws and policies to prevent suffering and promote compassion; they reach out to legislators and businesses to bring about institutional reforms. Farm Sanctuary remains committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts. Please join them. A compassionate world begins with you!

The Nature Conservancy

 

The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Their vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives. The Conservancy pursues non-confrontational, pragmatic solutions to conservation's challenges working with partners including indigenous communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, and other non-profits.



Human Rights Watch (HRW)

 

Human Rights Watch is one of the world's leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, they give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes. Their rigorous, objective investigations and strategic, targeted advocacy build intense pressure for action and raise the cost of human rights abuse. For 30 years, Human Rights Watch has worked tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep-rooted change and has fought to bring greater justice and security to people around the world.
