Campaign to Save Antibiotics
Communities across the country are coming together save antibiotics. Each pin on the map shows where a city council has passed a resolution calling for an end to the misuse of antibiotics on factory farms.
* Indicates that a majority of council members have signed on to a letter in support of saving antibiotics from factory farm abuse.
How You Can Help
The science is clear and the medical community is in agreement – unless we act soon to end the irresponsible use of antibiotics, they won’t work when we really need them. The vast majority of antibiotics sold in the U.S. (80 percent) are used for agriculture and most of these drugs are routinely fed to animals to make them grow faster and compensate for filthy, crowded living conditions on factory farms. Our food system doesn’t need to operate this way, and our communities are coming together to call for a healthier future for our farms and families.
