Support independent journalism to change the conversation about animal agriculture.
Sentient Media is a nonprofit news organization that is changing the conversation around animal agriculture across the globe.
We create public awareness of the agriculture industry’s impact on the climate crisis, extraction of natural resources and systemic exploitation of those bound up in food production. We’re doing this through critical commentary, investigative journalism, creating resources, strengthening the journalist and advocate community, partnering with publishers and holding the media accountable when it fails to report on the most pressing issues of our time.
Your support allows us to support more journalists, hold mainstream media accountable by debunking myths and investigate these injustices. In 2023, for every $1.50 you give, a generous match donor will donate $1.
Our reporting has shown that our industrial food system causes racial and economic inequalities, costs taxpayers billions of dollars a year, and is inhumane — leading to unthinkable suffering for trillions of sentient beings day after day.
Our journalism exposes injustice and our science reporting unlocks curiosity about animals and ecosystems. We give visibility to the outsized role industrial agriculture plays in our current planetary crisis, and to those who are ensnared within a torturous system.
We lead by example and act as a resource to encourage journalists and social justice advocates across the globe to report these stories. Our reporting offers fresh and educated perspectives to empower environmentalists, nutritionists, animal advocates, human rights advocates and policy makers as they make their cases for change.
We partner with international, national, and local media outlets to reach diverse audiences around the world. To date, we have trained over 800 established and aspiring writers in 50+ countries, leading to more than 2,000 articles being published in a variety of media outlets exposing the truth about our global food systems.
We aim to serve those who have been historically marginalized by mainstream media through our team of writers and our Sentient Media Journalism Fund.
