Leah Garcés is a founder of Compassion in World Farming USA and, as of October 1, the first female President of Mercy for Animals (MFA) - an international nonprofit animal protection organization founded in 1999 by Milo Runkle. Mercy For Animals is dedicated to preventing cruelty to farmed animals and promoting compassionate food choices and policies.
You may remember our last conversation with Leah from Episode 24, where we talked about her journey right after she joined MFA. This conversation is about her new book - GRILLED: Turning Adversaries into Allies to Change the Chicken Industry.
GRILLED details Leah’s experiences working alongside farmers and food industry leaders—encouraging change through dialogue and discussion—to reduce animal suffering and shine a spotlight on the rapidly growing plant-based food sector.
In this conversation we talked about what moved Leah to write the book, why she decided to focus on chicken and what she learned along the way. Tune in to learn more!
