Certified Cruelty, Dispelling the Humane Farming Myth
Marji Beach has rescued thousands of chickens from both large and small-scale egg farms and offers a behind the scenes look at several of Animal Place’s rescues. She will share, from her firsthand experience, how the similarities between “certified humane” and “factory-farmed” far outweigh their differences. Learn how you can become a more powerful advocate to chickens suffering in the egg industry.
Marji is passionate about ending farmed animal suffering. She earned her Animal Science degree from UC Davis, using that knowledge to advocate on behalf of farmed animals.

She developed Animal Place’s flagship rescue and adoption program Rescue Ranch, which saves animals from slaughter, with a special emphasis on hens from the egg industry.
