This is the second article we’ve posted about ideas for fostering innovation in the movement. You can read the first article here—Imagine: LA Vegan Meat Competition. If you wanted to be a catalyst for innovation in animal advocacy, how exactly would you do that?...
What did it take to pass Prop 12 in California this past November, making it “the strongest law in the world protecting farm animals from extreme confinement”? Maybe we start back with Peter Singer’s publication of the book Animal Liberation and the launch of the...
There are two ways to have an idea. The first way, you think of something—maybe an idea for a mobile app to help people go vegan. You spend a week mapping out the full vision for the project: every single thing you could do with it, start to finish. You spend weeks...

Not all behavior change is created equally. Let’s say you have $1,000. You could take that $1,000 and stash it under your bed for the next couple decades. Each passing year, everything in the world would get slightly more expensive—inflation would be at work, slowly...
It’s rare for different flanks (groups? sides?) of the movement to talk to each other—what you may not know is how much people on different sides don’t even use the same language. This week is going to be a short one, but I think it’s a good topic to chew on....
