The Humane League Mexico

The Humane League is a non-profit that works to reduce the suffering of farm animals through education. Their campaigns aspire to change eating habits through corporation outreach, demos, and activism, both online and in-person.

The Humane League was founded in the US and has a branch in Mexico. Their main focus is reducing the suffering of animals used for human consumption such as cows and hens, among others. Their main strategy is the modification of corporate and institutional practices through animal welfare campaigns that target specific companies, such as Grupo Posadas, Soriana and Walmart Mexico.

I started working with them as a volunteer and then became an intern to complete my Master's Degree in Translation from ISTRAD. I collaborated under the supervision of Martha Mondragón, communications coordinator of The Humane League in Mexico.

English text

The English version of the blog post named: "For hens in Latin America, strength in numbers".

Other activities

Besides working on this particular translation, I also translated other posts that The Humane League used for their blog, such as the one celebrating the changes that will be made by Wyndham Worldwide Corporation and Newrest regarding their egg supply. This document mentioned that these companies had made a compromise to eliminate battery cages from their supply lines across their hotels, complexes and industrial catering services. Another activity that I performed was the translation of their social network etiquette and Instagram account development guidelines. These documents will be very useful to guide new volunteers that want to help the organization in Spanish-speaking countries. I also helped them manage their social network accounts such as Facebook and Instagram. For this specific task, I had to be up to date regarding the company's latest news and reply to questions about animal welfare and vegan lifestyle that users were making through these platforms in a proper manner. For Instagram, I created images with texts and quotes that would make The Humane League's followers reflect about the daily choices we make. My inspiration to create the texts came mainly from Pinterest pins (most of them in English) which I translated and adapted to the available images and space.
