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 […]
The deceptively named Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is at it again, making ludicrous claims on the airwaves of Washington, DC. Of course, with PCRM being little more than an organization dedicated to making a PETA-like agenda seem legitimate, this “committee” of “physicians” has a funny definition of “responsible” and “medicine.” Before we dive […]
The bumbling leadership of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the main accrediting body for zoological institutions, has outdone itself. You may remember last year’s conference, at which AZA CEO Dan Ashe invited and gave a glowing introduction to Wayne Pacelle of the anti-zoo group Humane Society of the United States. Now this year, AZA […]

The legislation follows a decades-long campaign from animal rights extremists such as PETA and the Humane Society of the United States to ban fur around the country. This move sets a […]
The marketing departments of the newest crop of fake meats love to imply that their products are natural and healthy. But when you flip the package over and really look at the ingredients you may be shocked that these vegan discs are made from a mishmash of processed ingredients and factory assembled.

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.
