Interview with ACE Executive Director Jon Bockman
Animal advocacy in a global context
How can we think about effectiveness across geographical and cultural contexts? How can North American and European advocates support advocacy in other parts of the world, such as India and China, in responsible and impactful ways? In this talk Marianne, ACE’s Movement Grants Program Officer, explores the pros and cons of different approaches to international advocacy.
EA Global 2019: San Francisco
While the EA movement has grown to influence a substantial amount of funding within animal advocacy, we still struggle with a lack of strong evidence behind many of the field’s most common interventions. In this talk, ACE Executive Director Leah Edgerton discusses strategies advocates can use to gather more evidence in the long term and avoid overconfidence in the short term.
ACE’s Executive Director, Leah Edgerton, discusses the unique characteristics—and challenges—faced in the animal welfare cause area, and how ACE addresses these challenges within an effective altruism framework.

Animal Advocacy Strategies: Technology vs. Social Change
If we want to help farmed animals, there are at least two clear avenues to pursue. One, we can promote technologies to replace farming, like plant-based or clean (cultured) meat. Or two, we can try to change social attitudes towards the moral standing of animals. Does either of this options seem much better than the other? In this talk from EA Global 2018: San Francisco, Kelly Witwicki and ACE Researcher Kieran Greig discuss the relevant considerations.
Pathways into Animal Advocacy Research
