Executive Director, Compassion Over Killing
Erica Meier is the executive director of Compassion Over Killing (COK), a non-profit animal protection organization based in Washington, DC. Since 1995, COK has worked to expose farmed animal abuse and promote vegetarian eating using a variety of strategies, including undercover investigations, litigation, corporate campaigns, and public outreach. In addition to ending the egg industry’s misleading “Animal Care Certified” claim, COK persuaded BOCA Foods to stop using eggs, and airs pro-vegetarian commercials nationwide. Before working at COK, Erica was an animal control officer in DC, rescuing sick, injured, and homeless animals as well as enforcing animal protection laws.
