Carrie Packwood Freeman is currently associate professor in the Department of Communication at Georgia State University. A multi-year grantee, she writes:

Through Culture & Animals Foundation, I was able to turn my dissertation research into a vegan advocacy book in 2014: Framing Farming: Communication Strategies for Animal Rights. Framing Farming was a 2016 awards finalist in the Social & Political Change category of the National Indie Excellence book award competition. I promote the strategic communication ideas from this book at activist conferences, in the media, and through my website In 2016, Culture & Animals Foundation also supported my second book project currently in the works: The Human Animal Earthling Identity: Common Values Unifying Human Rights, Animal Rights, and Environmentalism. I will create a website for this book, present findings at the Minding Animals conference in Mexico City in 2018, and seek an audience of animal activists, social justice activists, and environmental activists with which to share my strategic communication findings to join forces to protect living beings from exploitation.
