Since 2018, Sentient Media has been delivering explanatory and investigative journalism alongside critical commentary—giving a voice to those stuck within exploitative industrial systems.
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 the suffering of trillions of sentient beings day after day.
Our journalism exposes wrongs, bringing them to the attention of those who can take action. 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.
But we can’t do it without your help. If you find value in our reporting, please consider becoming a monthly member or making a one-time donation during our spring donation drive.
