Defending Prop 12

APRL coordinated volunteer efforts to gather thousands of signatures for California's Proposition 12 in 2018 and conducted voter outreach to help ensure its passage.

Prop 12 bans the sale of eggs, pork, and veal from animals confined in cages too small to turn around or move, which is the industry standard. Voters passed Prop 12 overwhelmingly, but the National Pork Producers Council filed suit, and the U.S. Supreme Court will be hearing the case in October 2022.

APRL has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in support of the law.
