The Humane Party

America’s Party of Science and Ethics

The Humane Party is the U.S.A.’s first political party committed to:

  1. Legal rights and personhood for all animals—not just the human kind,
  2. Full realization of an ecosystem-neutral, sustainably prosperous economy, and
  3. Support and election of only those candidates who have committed to humane values both personally and politically.


The Humane Party launched on Earth Day (April 22), 2009, registered its first voters in 2011, first attended the Animal Rights National Conference in 2011, and announced the nomination of its first candidate for U.S. President, Clifton Roberts, on World Vegan Day (November 1), 2015. Roberts was joined in 2016 by running mate Breeze Harper to form the first fully vegan, abolitionist Presidential ticket in U.S. history.  This candidacy marked the beginning of an era in which U.S. voters no longer have to settle for the “lesser of evils” when voting for President.

Other Humane Party milestones include publication of the final drafts of the Equal Rights Amendment II and the Democracy Amendment in 2015; declaration of the first Abolition Day (Dec. 6) in 2015, both to commemorate ratification of the 13th Amendment (1865) and promote the abolition of all slavery; declaration of Civil Rights Day (Apr. 9) in 2016, both to commemorate the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and to promote the protection of civil rights; and publication of the final draft of the Abolition Amendment on Abolition Day, 2016.

In 2018, Robert Mason ran in the U.S. House of Representatives race to represent the Third District of Texas, and Clifton Roberts ran in the U.S. Senate race to represent the state of California.  The Humane Party also began management of the Veggie Pride Parade, the largest event of its kind in the New York area.

In 2019, Ryan Lum of Happy Healthy Vegan announced his campaign entry into the 2020 race for Long Beach City Council.  Clifton Roberts edged out Robert Mason to win the Humane Party’s first Presidential primary, becoming the HP’s 2020 nominee for U.S. President.

Humane Party chapters are forming in all states, and we need volunteers nationwide right now.

Americans now stand squarely at the crossroads. We can set the United States on a path toward lasting peace and abundant prosperity. Or we can continue toward financial chaos, dependence on foreign resources, environmental destruction, economic disintegration, and moral lethargy.

The Humane Party® is rising to meet the challenge. If you also feel called to action, we invite you to volunteer to be a part of the team—for our country, our planet, and all its inhabitants.
