Ashley Capps

Ashley Capps received an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop; her first book of poems is Mistaking the Sea for Green Fields. The recipient of a 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, she works as a writer, editor, and researcher specializing in farmed animal welfare and vegan advocacy. Ashley has written for numerous animal rights organizations, and is a core staff writer and editor for Free from Harm, a farmed animal advocacy organization, and A Well-Fed World, a plant-based hunger relief and food justice non-profit. She is also the writer and director for Humane Facts, a campaign devoted to debunking the humane animal farming myth, and to exposing the routine cruelties behind humane meat, dairy and egg labels.

In 2016, Ashley founded Mothers Against Dairy, a campaign devoted to spotlighting anti-dairy reflections from vegan mothers, and in 2017, she launched Milk Hurts, a comprehensive anti-dairy campaign and website (coming soon) focused on all the harms of dairy: to animals, human health, and the environment, with a special focus on debunking “humane” dairy trends and myths.

Ashley lives in Asheville with three cats and one dog. For more information on her poetry or advocacy writing, please visit her website.
