Compassion Is Not Speciesist

Thirty leaders in social sciences including Dr. Melanie Joy, Dr. Will Tuttle, Jeffrey Masson, Dr. Jonathan Balcombe and Professor Casey Taft have signed an open letter to a group of 12 organizations urging institutions whose work focus on empathy and compassion asking them to include all sentient beings in their work and mission.

Among the organizations targeted are Stanford's Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, the Greater Good Science Center at Berkeley, and the The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT.
