We’ve obtained unprecedented convictions of factory farms, pressured major companies to change how they treat animals, inspired millions to pledge to go vegetarian, and won major legislative victories.

We believe each of us deserves to bring our whole self to a safe environment where we can do our best work. At MFA, we foster an inclusive workplace where we lift one another up. Surveys and a staff-led culture committee elevate our staff’s voices.

We provide strong protections for our staff, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, or race. We extend these policies to interactions with donors, volunteers, interns, and contractors. We also celebrate LGBTQ pride, support women's rights, and encourage diversity.

We offer employees ample time off, flexible schedules, telecommuting opportunities, and generous benefits. Self-care, mindfulness, and work-life balance are essential to building a sustainable movement for animals. Our offices are also dog-friendly and vegan.

Our staff is our most valuable asset. Continual learning is part of everything we do. Employees have access to a resource library with thousands of training videos. MFA also offers excellent opportunities for advancement.
