Animal Advocacy Careers (AAC) seeks to address the career and talent bottlenecks in the animal advocacy movement, especially the farmed animal movement.
Animal advocacy — including everything from public activism to developing new foods that can replace animal products — seems like one of the most effective ways to improve animal welfare.

And animal advocacy might also be one of the best opportunities for improving society in the long term, too.

AAC is a nonprofit funded by philanthropic donations, and all of its programmes are free.
