About the Organisation

Originally started in early 2023 as an AI focused channel on the Hive (formerly known as Impactful Animal Advocacy) Slack by Constance Li, AI for Animals has grown from a side project into something that more represents an organization with a website, a coalition, a newsletter, and an international conference/retreat which also included digital minds. The reception to our work has been enthusiastic and we were recently able to get enough funding to start hiring for a full-time role. Previously, the work was mainly done pro bono by the founder. Now we are looking for someone to more formally develop and execute a strategic vision for this project.

AI for Animals is a project by Hive, which is a community building organization for the farmed animal advocacy movement that also grew from a small side project in 2022 to an organization with an international team of 5 backed by funders like Open Philanthropy, Lush, Craigslist, Humane America, and more. Hive consists of a thriving slack community with 2,500+ members, a widely subscribed to movement-centric newsletter, resource guides, and events. We operate through a strategic do-ocracy where each member is given high autonomy to develop their own initiatives.
