Colorado Residents: Tell Your State Legislators to Honor Free Speech about CAFOs!

Colorado is considering “ag-gag” legislation—making it more difficult to document and expose illegal and cruel practices at concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and other agricultural facilities without permission.

It’s clear the only reason for this legislation is to keep the public from seeing the shocking conditions that exist on CAFOs. If passed into law, this bill will protect large factory farms by making undercover investigations into animal care illegal. Those who report and expose cruelty to animals would risk huge fines. 

Recently, a judge in the federal District Court for Idaho ruled that the state’s so-called “ag-gag” law was unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds. Tell your legislator that being a whistleblower is protected speech under the First Amendment, and if farmers don’t want their dirty laundry aired, they should simply make their farms sanitary and treat their animals humanely. Rather than stop cruel treatment of animals, this bill will simply ensure that the public never learns about it.
