 About Carnism Awareness & Action Network:
CAAN is a charitable organization dedicated to raising awareness of and transforming carnism, the invisible belief system that conditions people to eat certain animals. At CAAN, we believe that people need and deserve to know the truth about carnism, so they can make their food choices freely—because without awareness, there is no free choice. CAAN seeks to empower concerned citizens and vegan advocates through education and activism to help create a more just world for all beings, human and nonhuman alike.

Melanie Joy, Ph.D., Ed.M. is the founder and president of Carnism Awareness & Action Network. Dr. Joy is a Harvard-educated psychologist, professor of psychology and sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, celebrated speaker, and the author of the award-winning primer on carnism “Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows”. She has written a number of articles on psychology, animal protection, and social justice and she has been featured on programs including the BBC, National Public Radio, PBS, ABC Australia, and Good Morning Croatia, and in Slovenia's Jana, the Austrian Der Standard and the Italian Le Scienze. Dr. Joy has given her critically acclaimed carnism presentation across the United States as well as internationally. Dr. Joy is also the author of Strategic Action for Animals.

Dr. Joy was recently presented with the Institute of Jainology's Ahimsa Award at the House of Commons in London. This award, for which she was the eighth recipient, was a great honor -- previous recipients include the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela.
