Prior to launching on Earth Day (April 22), 2009, the Humane Party had three alternative names: the “Vegan Party,” the “Abolition Party,” and the “Humane Party.” While the name was under debate, a logo was designed for the Abolition Party. Activists are welcome to reactivate this dormant logo, where appropriate.
Does the advent of lab-grown meat mean a battle’s been won
and that the war against profiteering from pain is done?
Have you ever thought, “If only I were President of the United States”? Imagine all the possibilities, the changes that could be made. To end suffering as much as humanely possible. To see liberation and equality for all. How about bringing these thoughts to fruition? The Humane Party is holding for the first time in its existence a Presidential Primary for the 2020 Presidential election.
The Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team (ETT) has completed its report comparing vegan-organic agriculture and animal-based agriculture on an acre per acre basis. Using past Humane Party reports as well as USDA, FAO and animal agriculture industry data, we have compiled a series of tables analyzing the needs of the over 9.624 billion land animals that were raised in the United States in 2017 and have reached significant conclusions.
Upon expiration of the public-comment period and a final review, the Humane Party Board of Directors has ratified the full design of Class A for the Humane National Committee (HNC) as published on October 19, 2018. Class A of the HNC represents a significant advance over the traditional model of geography-based representation.

The “State of Food and Agriculture Report 2014” of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization shows that, “Families run nine out of every ten farms (worldwide) or 500 million farms. Additional analysis shows that family farms occupy a large share of the world’s agricultural land and produce about 80% of the world’s food.” Could small-scale farms be the answer to feeding an ever-growing population? To further that discussion, the Economic Transition Team of the Humane Party has completed its report analyzing the productivity of vegan-organic farming.
This Thursday, December 6, 2018, marks the third annual celebration of Abolition Day. Abolition Day was launched by the Humane Party in 2015 both (i) to commemorate the end of human slavery in the United States (1865) and (ii) to promote the abolition of all slavery. The date of December 6 was chosen for this national celebration because it was on this day in 1865 that the number of states necessary to ratify the 13th Amendment was reached.
As winter approaches, many people will be spending more time indoors. The holiday season also means, for some, more social time with family and friends.
Here are three films that activists may enjoy checking out from their local libraries and sharing with family and friends.
Despite the effort to combat exhibitionist violence, for more than twenty years now, the U.S.’s carnist political parties have carried on an annual celebration of the suffering and death of millions of innocent birds, known as the Presidential “turkey pardoning.”
Carnist candidates swept elections in all 50 states on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. While the Democrat-Republicans retain their exclusive hegemony in both houses of the U.S. Congress as well as in all 50 state legislatures, more than one billion animals are tortured, mutilated, raped, molested, kidnapped, and killed each year in the U.S. These violent and perverse acts remain legal as a direct result of Democrat-Republican political supremacy at the state and federal level. However, ramp-up for the 2020 U.S. Senate, House, and Presidential races begins immediately. There is no time for delay. Environmentalists, animal rights activists, vegans, and abolitionists who wish to halt and reverse this process are invited to run for office.
Each year, more than a billion animals are mutilated, tortured, kidnapped, raped, slashed, electrocuted, strangled, burned, skinned, and/or killed in U.S. vivisection laboratories, slaughterhouses, and other mass-killing facilities. On Election Day, November 6th, 2018, all of that could change.
A museum and convention hall commemorating the Underground Railroad has opened in Niagara Falls, New York, to honor the courage, sacrifice, and determination of the many people who helped escapees in their journey to freedom prior to abolition of human slavery in the United States.
The clandestine network that helped people escape from bondage in the U.S. represents an early American example of direct action which can be viewed, in that regard, as an antecedent to the Animal Liberation Front of today.

The year 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which secured women in the U.S. the right to vote. On this occasion, it is important to remember that the Humane Party has addressed the gap between the proposed Equal Rights Amendment in 1923 and current social issues, by drafting a new Constitutional amendment that would be fully inclusive of gender-, sexuality-, and marriage-related rights.
New York, NY, Oct. 22, 2018 – Esther Ouwehand, Member of Parliament for the Dutch Party for the Animals, is hosting the premier screening in New York tonight of the groundbreaking animal rights documentary, Dominion.
