You Can Participate in the Mission of CreatureKind!

Whether you are just starting your CreatureKind journey or have understood the effects of factory farming on animals, workers, and the environment for decades—whether you have five minutes to spare or are looking for in-depth engagement—there's a way to participate in the CreatureKind Mission. 

Our Mission: CreatureKind’s mission is to encourage Christians to recognize faith-based reasons for caring about the wellbeing of fellow creatures animals used for food, and to take practical action in response. Our core message is that we are CreatureKind together with all animals, and we ought to be CreatureKind in how we treat each other.

 

sign the Creaturekind commitment

If you have already begun to take action for animals, or you plan to start now, take just a moment to add your name to our pledge alongside other Christians who are concerned about farmed animal welfare. Once you’ve added your name, please share the petition with others in your community, whether that’s in-person or via social media. Your personal story can be a powerful help to others as they begin their own journey.

 

lead a church/community discussion

If you are part of a church or other organization where you could lead a small group study, download this free material and invite others to participate. We provide all the course materials, and a guide for leaders. You don't need any specialist knowledge, just the motivation to help people think and discuss together.

CreatureKind Affiliates

CreatureKind Affiliates are teams of two or more people who are working to raise awareness of farmed animal welfare issues in their communities. Each year, the team agrees on three conversation-starting actions, signs the CreatureKind Action Plan, and sends the plan to CreatureKind so we can help spread the word. Pick from our suggested list of actions (i.e. host a speaker, preach a sermon, virtual classroom visit, staff/faculty brief, friendly food challenge, host a chef training, conference workshop or track, resource development, etc), or come up with your own.

CreatureKind Partner Communities

CreatureKind Partner Communities are institutions where collective action is taking place concerning fellow creatures used in the production of food. These universities, churches, denominations, and other organizations are working with CreatureKind to raise awareness, improve food practices, and change institutional policies to benefit the whole of God’s creation.
