About the Public Justice Food Project
The Public Justice Food Project envisions a future where our food chain results in healthy, empowered communities and sustainable livelihoods, and an animal agriculture system that is transparent and accountable to people, not profit. It is the only legal project in the country that is focused solely on dismantling industrial animal agriculture — particularly, the structures that enable the consolidation of corporate power and extractive systems — and supporting a positive vision of animal agriculture that is regenerative, humane, and owned by independent farmers.
Sourcing at Public Justice
Reporters, editors and producers are welcome to contact the Public Justice Food Project for insight and analysis any time you are researching or reporting on legal issues and developments. Our areas of expertise within the Food Project include:

- Civil Rights and Environmental Justice
- Industrial Agriculture and Public Health
- Consolidation and Antitrust in Agriculture
- Ag-gag, and Constitutional Implications of Agricultural Laws
The Public Justice Food Project fights for a better food system by bringing strategically targeted litigation that supports the larger good food movement and redresses the structural and institutional inequities upon which the current system is built. In addition to pursuing litigation that makes a difference, we combine litigation with base building and communications to create lasting change, and are growing a legal network across the country to support communities impacted by industrial animal agriculture.
