London, 31st July 2023
On Saturday (29th July) Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation (CAWF) Co-Founder Chris Platt delivered a speech at the 2023 Animal and Vegan Advocacy (AVA) Summit in Los Angeles, United States.
In his speech to delegates, Chris spoke about the formation of Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation and the importance of engaging with policymakers and legislators across political divides. He emphasised the importance of building a genuine and effective Conservative animal welfare movement.
Chris also touched on the principle of longtermism, which “calls for the contemplation of our actions and policies, and how they impact on future generations and all living beings, including animals“.
He added that: “Animals don’t care who you work with. They don’t care whether you are left or right, Democrat or Republican. They care about how you affect change.”
Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation was both honoured and thrilled to have attended and presented at the AVA Summit this past weekend.

About Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation (CAWF)
The Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation was established in 2016 to raise awareness on the lives of billions of animals reared on intensive farms around the world and how this impact upon animal welfare, the environment and people’s health. We want to highlight the action people can take to help advance farm animal welfare.
Animal welfare is an increasing concern amongst the public, who frequently look to Government to take the lead in both maintaining and improving standards.
The Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation believes it is highly important that the welfare of farm animals is placed at the forefront of the Governments plan for food and farming along with its focus on productivity, competitiveness, and technology.
