You may have noticed, as of October 2016, we've updated our website. We invite you to explore.
Along with our new look, we have a new focus: food.
If you've followed our work, you know NU helps consumers become aware of the power of their choices. And we work to make ethical consumer choices more available and affordable. If we want to reach the masses, the right choice has to be an easy choice.
One particular consumer choice that is having a monumental impact on the world around us is what people choose to eat. While Nonviolence United continues to promote the importance of all connected consumer choices, food and food systems are now our primary focus.
Within our broken food system, we have identified the leading destructive force: animal agribusiness. Animal agribusiness is the number one waster of and polluter of water, the number one cause of air pollution, the number one cause of man-made global climate disaster, species extinction, world hunger and disparate food distribution, deforestation, the leading cause of death and disease (in the U.S.), and number one cause of animal cruelty and killing.
So we’ve made our focus the number one consumer choice able to help the world: switching from animal-based foods to plant-based foods.
The world may be in trouble, but the solutions are all around you. And the power is in your hands. We are here to help you reclaim that power.
