An overview of the historical events leading to Juneteenth and an explanation of the Humane Party’s Abolition Day.
In 2010, the Humane Party undertook the creation of what would become known as the “Genocide Recognition, Reparations, and Reconciliation Act,” the basic terms of which appear in Section 15 of the Humane Party platform.
The Abolition Amendment was designed to be passed and ratified at the federal level, thereby ending slavery and emancipating all animals throughout the United States of America. But with a simple modification of the text, the Abolition Amendment can also be enacted at the state level. The Humane Party expressly encourages activists to pursue abolition at the state level, even before sufficient numbers have been attained to achieve victory at the national level. However, as the Compromise of 1820 (“Missouri Compromise”) marks its 200th anniversary, it is worth examining a concern associated with the state-by-state approach.
Now that 2020 has arrived, it seems like ages have passed since the HP’s “2020 Vision” booth was first deployed…
The U.S.’s ruling Democrat-Republican bloc has been propping up the failing animal-exploitation “industry” with taxpayer dollars for decades. No one has emerged as a more reliable pawn of animal exploitation than Bernie Sanders, who has built his career serving the Vermont animal-exploitation “industry.” And this week, the Trump administration announced handouts in the amount of $9.6 billion to animal-killing operations.
From energy policy to economics, virtually every day another group of scientists comes out in favor of the Humane Party position. The coronavirus pandemic has only accelerated that trend.
A new reality has set in, where we’re facing threats to our survivability, unprecedented in our lifetimes. If nothing else, the current global pandemic is a direct sign that humans must move away from the exploitation of animals. In not doing so, we will continue to put our own lives in peril.
History holds a treasure trove of resources for vegan, abolitionist, animal rights activists, but many of these resources remain untapped by the movement. This omission can, one hopes, be partly remedied through articles and film dramatizations pointing to information about moments in history from which readers and viewers can extract valuable lessons, glean techniques, and draw moral support.

A poem on veganism as integral nonviolence
Science and technology tend to progress at a faster pace than do fields such as philosophy and ethics. For reasons…
Through a series of publications the Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team has revealed that the United States agriculture system needs to be converted 100% to plant-based agriculture. The Economic Transition Team is now happy to announce that it has completed its report on Comparing Protein and Caloric Energy (Kcal) Produced per Acre on US Farms.
In 2018, the overall parameters for the Humane National Committee were finalized by the Humane Party after expiration of the associated public-comment period and internal review. Assignment for the seats of Class A, which takes a geography-based approach related to that used in the U.S. House of Representatives, was also finalized after public comment and review. Proposed seat clusters for Class B are today published through The Humane Herald for public comment. The public is invited to comment on these proposed seats during the next 30 days.
Today is Earth Day, and today is the 10th anniversary of the Humane Party, which was founded on the fundamental ideas of abolition of exploitation. The party’s hundreds of volunteers and thousands of followers see the necessity of such a party when the current political parties always seem to offer more of the same. The Humane Party’s platform is different. It is far-reaching and encompasses ideals beyond safeguarding the environment and ending the suffering of species.
