Growing the Movement
Executive Director, Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC)
Monica Chen is Executive Director of Factory Farming Awareness Coalition, which contributes to the eradication of factory farming through educational programs that prepare high school and college students to advocate for just and sustainable food systems. Under Monica’s leadership, FFAC has developed three interconnected programs to educate and empower young advocates. FFAC educators present lessons on the devastating impacts of animal agriculture in high schools and universities. Motivated students can attend the Advocacy Institute’s intensive semester-length internship program that integrates study and fieldwork. Graduates of the Institute can join the Leadership Collective, which provides ongoing training, networking, and support for their advocacy.
