About the Issue
Citizens for Farm Animal Protection is a grassroots coalition working to prevent cruelty to veal calves, egg-laying hens, and pigs by campaigning for a YES! vote on Question 3 of this November's ballot. These animals are crammed into cages so small they can't turn around or extend their limbs. This practice is abusive and increases the risk of food safety problems, like Salmonella. We're a broad coalition of non-profit organizations, farmers and businesses, community leaders, and grassroots activists dedicated to enacting Question 3 to ban the cruel confinement of farm animals. Thanks to the help of more than a thousand volunteers, we gathered more than 170,000 signatures from registered Massachusetts voters to qualify for the ballot. By voting YES! on Question 3, we will help protect animals from abuse.
