About the Humane Party
The Humane Party, launched in 2009, is the U.S.’s first fully abolitionist political party. The Humane Party platform calls for abolishing the property status of all animals—not just the human kind—thereby ending ownership, rape, torture, mutilation, and slaughter of animals throughout the U.S. Every Humane Party candidate, officer, and board member must execute the Humane Party Oath indicating that they are vegan personally and abolitionist politically.
