The Humane Party

United States

The Humane Party, launched in 2009, is America’s first political party committed to rights for all animals—not just the human kind. All HP candidates, officers, and board members must be vegan personally and abolitionist politically. HP’s proposed Constitutional amendments include:

  • Abolition Amendment: abolishing all forms of slavery, including meat, fish, poultry, dairy, egg, leather, fur, vivisection, rodeo, animal-racing, and all other exploitation-based industries;
  • Equal Rights Amendment 2 (“ERA2”): guaranteeing sex, gender, and marriage equality;
  • Democracy Amendment: replacing Electoral College system with democratic elections.

HP candidates seek the U.S. Presidency and a majority in both houses of Congress.
