  • ASPCA Stonewalls Over 20 Dog Deaths

    It has been more than three weeks since we reported that 20 dogs died under the care of ASPCA during a cross country journey from Mississippi to Wisconsin. The deaths only came to light because an internal email leaked to the New York Post. We wrote at the time that the ASPCA’s response would tell us what […]

  • EXPOSED: Animal Activist’s Racist, Woman-Beating History

    Tonight, CBS News is airing an episode of the show Whistleblower featuring John Hargrove. Hargrove is a former SeaWorld trainer who claims to have had a change of heart, speaking out against having marine mammals in human care. What CBS likely won’t clue viewers into, however, is Hargrove’s arrest record, past racism, or financial incentive to mold himself […]

  • Direct Action Everywhere Sued by Turkey Farm

    The legal troubles are starting to rack up for Wayne Hsiung, leader of animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), which has gained infamy by breaking into farms and harassing people in supermarkets and restaurants. We aren’t just referencing the mounting criminal charges he’s facing, but also his civil battle—which surely is coming at considerable expense. DxE and Hsiung […]

  • 5 Chemicals Lurking in Plant-Based Meats

    When something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t. In recent years, more consumers are trying meat substitutes made with plants. But they’re not made only with plants. Fake meat can have over 50 chemical ingredients—something you wouldn’t realize if you’re ordering at a restaurant. Consumer interest in fake meat has been piqued thanks to […]

  • Will the IRS Crack Down on Animal Activists?

    It seems harassment from animal activists is on the rise. And it’s high time the IRS and FBI do something about it. Last week, we filed a complaint with the IRS and FBI regarding PETA and two California-based groups called Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) and Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation. These are radical groups lobbying […]

  • Animal Activists Fight to Harm the Environment

    The Humane League has decided to take an old PETA tactic up a few notches.

About Activist Facts

Activist Facts, a project of the Center for Organizational Research and Education, provides the public and media with in-depth profiles of think tanks, activist groups, and foundations, along with information about the sources of their funding.

Some of these organizations provide a responsible public service. But some, despite their innocent-sounding names, are financial Goliaths that use junk science, intimidation tactics, and even threats of violence to push their radical agendas. We’ve analyzed over 500,000 pages of IRS records to bring you a comprehensive snapshot of where their money comes from, tracking more than $800 million to date.

We also offer valuable information about hundreds of deep-pocketed foundations, activist celebrities, and other key players in the animal rights, “food police,” and eco-terrorism movements.
