Sarahjane Blum lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and has been active in animal liberation and social justice movements since the 1990s. In 2003, Sarahjane co-founded GourmetCruelty.com , a grassroots coalition dedicated to exposing the abuse of ducks and geese raised for foie gras. The following year, the group released a short film, Delicacy of Despair, Behind the Closed Doors of the Foie Gras Industry, documenting their investigation of deplorable conditions on foie gras farms, and featuring the “open rescue” of a number of ducks. After her arrest stemming from this open rescue, she became increasingly active in raising awareness of the ongoing repression of activists throughout the United States. You can follow her on twitter @sarahjaneblum.
Sarah Jane has essays in The Terrorization of Dissent: Corporate Repression, Legal Corruption and the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act and Confronting Animal Exploitation: Grassroots Essays on Liberation and Veganism
