Director's Statement
Rosenzweig_Susan_Director_headshot.jpg

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved animals and wanted to help them. To me they’re just like us. When I was a kid, my dad taught me how to help baby birds that had fallen out of their nests and to use a Dixie cup to catch bugs in the house and put them outside – something I do to this day. I became a vegetarian when I was nine and discovered where lamb chops and chicken nuggets came from. I was horrified – but even I was completely in the dark about what goes on at factory farms until about 6 years ago.

"Baby Hers" is my attempt to create awareness about one of the best kept secrets of the dairy industry, and help billions of mothers and babies who are suffering daily but have no voice of their own.

Most people don’t want to learn this sad truth, I certainly didn’t. But not knowing something doesn’t stop it from happening. I believe it’s up to all of us to speak for the voiceless, and demand that all living beings are treated with empathy and respect – even those who walk on four legs and can’t say the word “no.” One of the easiest ways to do that is by shopping compassionately. Choose local and nondairy options whenever you can. And learn about the amazing plant-based alternatives available – they’re delicious and cruelty-free.

For more info, I encourage people to see the links on our "Resources" page, and to visit the Instagram account @howtoditchdairy for surprisingly delicious dairy alternatives.
