Erica Meier, President

Erica Meier is the president of Animal Outlook (formerly Compassion Over Killing), a non-profit animal protection organization based in Washington, DC.

Since 1995, Animal Outlook has worked to expose farmed animal abuse and promote veg-friendly eating by employing a variety of strategies, including hard-hitting undercover investigations, groundbreaking pro-active litigation, successful corporate campaigns, and empowering public outreach programs.

In addition to ending the egg industry’s misleading “Animal Care Certified” claim, under Erica’s leadership, Animal Outlook has persuaded food giants including Subway, Dunkin Donuts, BOCA Foods and Morningstar Farms to add vegan options to their menus. Erica has also appeared in several major news stories on CNN, ABC’s Nightline News, the Washington Post, LA Times, and more.

These accomplishments along with many more earned her the coveted National Animal Rights Hall of Fame award in 2013.

Before working at Animal Outlook, Erica served as an animal control officer in Washington DC, rescuing sick, injured, and homeless animals as well as enforcing animal protection laws.
