CARE’s Research and Development team is data driven and equity centered. CARE is using evidence-based thought leadership that advances equity and reform for marginalized communities at the intersection of animal well-being and social justice.
Stories shape our vision of the world and often frame our perceptions and biases. For this reason, CARE is producing and sharing stories that celebrate the diversity within human and animal well-being.

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month (NHHM), CARE is celebrating Michael Bricker Sr. and Johanna Falber.
Jo’s family is Mexican and Cuban. “I love most the traditions and customs because of the African and Indigenous roots. I have learned to appreciate the sacrifices and efforts of those before me, and to speak up for those that are still voiceless today. (And I really appreciate el Grito Mexicano!)”
Most of Mike’s family comes from Puerto Rico, but he also is part Italian. “My fondest memories is celebrating holidays with my family and eating habichuelas Guisadas that my cousin and aunt would make. I could literally live off Puerto Rican rice and beans.”
Stay tuned for more!
