  • Humaniacs, Part 1: Activist Slapped with Restraining Order

    We’re starting an occasional blog series to highlight some of the more outrageous, extreme, or criminal acts done by animal rights activists, whether or not they’re affiliated with PETA, the Humane Society of the U.S., or other radical organizations. From harassing diners in restaurants to comparing eating meat to Nazi death camps, animal activists can […]

  • Which Animal Charities Should You Give To?

    HumaneWatch began to educate animal lovers about the Humane Society of the United States. Many people saw ads for HSUS, but few knew the truth: That only 1% of their money would go to local pet shelters. Despite its name, the Humane Society of the United States is not affiliated with local humane societies. HSUS […]

  • UK Proposes Limits on Pizza, No Limits on Nanny State

    Food in the UK is under threat. It’s not the first time bad food laws have come to the island—it was once mandated that all bananas sold in the EU had to be free of “abnormal curvature.” Brexit would solve a problem like that, but the latest ridicule-worthy proposal comes from Britain itself. Last week, […]

  • This One Chemical is Lurking in Your Food

    Care for some dihydrogen monoxide with your next meal? You may have instinctual skepticism to that offer. But that’s the chemical name for H2O; good old-fashioned water. A recent report reveals 10 percent of young adults want to ban dihydrogen monoxide from food and beverages. Obviously, news like this is frustrating to knowledgeable food scientists—or people who […]

  • Animal Lawyers Sue Bronx Zoo to “Liberate” Elephant

    Last week, we wrote about the unconscionable decision by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the main accrediting body for zoological institutions, to allow PETA to present a poster at the AZA annual conference. The AZA giving space to anti-zoo PETA is like the NAACP giving space to the Klan, and we criticized AZA head […]

  • Ad: Anti-Fur Activists Have Anti-Choice Agenda

    On Tuesday the Los Angeles City Council voted to advance a proposal to ban the sale and manufacture of fur garments in the city.

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.
