About Us

Founded in February 2021, The Voltaire Foundation of North America's mission is to assist in ending the needless suffering and exploitation of animals for human consumption. 
Following in the footsteps of Voltaire, Pythagoras, Einstein, DaVinci, Tesla, Hippocrates, Edison, Gandhi, and many, many more, we believe that killing and torturing animals is wrong and that compassion towards animals and humans leads to the highest form of ethics.
"As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other." ⁃Voltaire
We hope to make a difference by aiding in the removal of agricultural gag laws (which prevent whistleblowers and activists from recording or reporting on farms), helping provide transparency on animal welfare to the public, and financially supporting innovative enterprises that bring us closer to an ethical marketplace where animals are not killed or exploited.
