The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $153,000 to Family Farm Action (FFA) to support efforts to defeat the Protect Interstate Commerce Act, also known as the King Amendment. The amendment, if enacted, would prevent states from imposing animal welfare standards on the sale of animal products produced in another state. FFA plans to conduct grassroots outreach to affected groups, especially family farmers.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization to which we occasionally make funding recommendations. This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare
