Building a stronger animal advocacy movement

Our theory of change is rooted in the idea that uniting and empowering advocates can unlock value in the movement. We are strong on our own, but we can be stronger together.

At Hive (formerly Impactful Animal Advocacy), we work towards our mission by cultivating thriving spaces for advocates, enhancing knowledge sharing, and facilitating strategic connections for the movement.

With over 2000 community members worldwide, we are now one of the largest and most engaged communities for productive discussions and initiatives aimed at helping farmed animals.

We aim to remain responsive to our community's needs, foster an environment of support and effectiveness, and continue strengthening the animal advocacy movement.
