BREAKING: California has just passed the most progressive welfare law to date for farmed animals in the United States! #YesOnProp12

On Tuesday 6th November, a majority of Californians voted YES to #Prop12. This new law will affect the lives of some of America's most vulnerable animals – those who suffer in factory farming systems – including calves, breeding pigs, and egg-laying hens.

Proposition 12 or the Prevent Cruelty California Act establishes new standards and minimum requirements for confining certain farm animals, and prohibits the sales of meat and egg products that come from farms which do not comply.

While the passing of Proposition 12 won't end animal suffering, it is a major step forward and huge progress in our fight for animals. Thanks to the dedicated individuals and organizations whose campaigning efforts have helped to make this happen.
