Farm Sanctuary Launches Sentient Beings Campaign

Farm Sanctuary is pleased to announce a new campaign to have farm animals recognized as sentient beings in the United States. The campaign was launched with the August 4, 2001 debut of the web site, www.sentientbeings.org , and seeks to improve the status of farmed animals in the U.S. and to foster basic legal reforms.

Campaign materials available through the site include an online petition, sample letters and proclamation, and an op-ed written by Mary Tyler Moore who serves as the campaign's honorary chair. Organizations interested in lending their support to the campaign can download an endorsement form.
