We are calling for a moratorium on new factory farm construction and expansion in Minnesota. Here's why:
*Factory farms pollute our environment, with manure and runoff contaminating Minnesota's waterways and lakes.
*Factory farms confine animals in tiny quarters, causing immense suffering and leaving them vulnerable to tragedies like the fire that killed nearly 200,000 chickens in a single barn in 2022.
*Factory farms and industrial slaughterhouses exploit vulnerable workers, like the Worthington and Marshall children found working in a meatpacking plant in 2022.
Your response will be shared with Minnesota legislators.
Thanks for taking action to stop harm to Minnesota's environment, animals, and people!
