There are millions of them.

They live behind bars and die frightened and in pain. They may never see the sun. And their lives are in your hands.

About the Project

"Art has the power to transform
, to illuminate, to educate, inspire and motivate."

– Harvey Fierstein

Renowned street artist Dan Witz has created these pieces to connect us with the billions of individual animals who suffer and die out of sight each year for food.

The Empty the Cages project seeks to bring these animals out from the shadows – and remind us of what happens every day on farms and in slaughterhouses. At the same time, it reminds us that their fate is in our hands and that we have the power to save them by choosing not to consume their flesh.

Anyone interested in learning more about the suffering of animals in the meat and dairy industries – and how to stop supporting it – can order a free copy of PETA's vegan starter kit here.
