water or veterinary supervision, no compassion, experiencing fear and pain. Photo by Carol Guzy, The Washington Post
A generous supporter of United Poultry Concerns has offered to provide a $10,000 matching donation to the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos to assist our
campaign to ban this cruel and illegal ritual. So far we’ve raised $7,670. Please make a tax-deductible donation and your generosity will be doubled
with this matching pledge. The chickens need your help. We need your support to fight for the chickens through the court. Help us reach the $10,000 we need
to receive the matching donation that awaits. Here is what we are fighting to end. Please watch, then give:

The Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos is a project of
United Poultry Concerns.
Formed in New York City in June 2010, the Alliance is an association of groups and individuals who seek to
replace the use of chickens in Kaporos ceremonies with money or other non-animal symbols of atonement.
The Alliance does not oppose Kaporos per se, only the cruel and unnecessary use of chickens in the ceremony.
