Who was Karen Davis?

Karen Davis was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania; her parents were Amos and Mary Elizabeth Davis. Amos was the Blair County District attorney from 1966 to 1975.

She graduated from Hollidaysburg Area High School in 1962. She studied for her undergraduate degree at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania.

Davis obtained her PhD in English from the University of Maryland, College Park. She also taught English at the University of Maryland while she started United Poultry Concerns.

Since 1999, she and United Poultry Concerns hosted 19 conferences on farmed animal-vegan advocacy issues.

Davis launched a campaign against National Public Radio’s This American Life for its annual “Poultry Slam” show, arguing that host Ira Glass was contributing to the poor treatment and slaughter of chickens and turkeys.

Eventually, Glass visited Davis’s sanctuary and announced on the Late Show with David Letterman in 2008 that he had become a vegetarian thanks to Davis.

Davis was one of several people who provided information used in the writing of the book Striking at the Roots: A Practical Guide to Animal Activism (2008) by Mark Hawthorne.

Davis paid for an advertisement in the The New York Times in protest at the practice of killing chickens in the streets of New York during the Yom Kippur ritual of kapparot.
