Cows and Bulls are not machines to exploit as we wish. They’re perpetual victims of violence and systemic abuse of power that only continues with the help of tens of billions of dollars in corporate welfare every year. It’s time to end the subsidies and Let Dairy Die!
Since 2019, DxE’s campaign to #LetDairyDie has called for an end of federal subsidies that support an industry that exploits workers and consumers, accelerates the climate crisis and causes unfathomable violence against animals. While this message has reached millions through mainstream news and media, the effort faces a new obstacle in the appointment of a dairy lobbyist to the head of the US department of agriculture.
Please join us for a creative action that calls on Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to shift federal subsidies away from animal cruelty and dietary racism and toward helping our farmers and food system transition into a just one.
