Meredith (in the photo), was nominated for the award by the Animal Agriculture Alliance, where she worked until October. In two years with the Alliance, she substantially increased the organization’s news coverage and was interviewed by news outlets ranging from Al Jazeera to The Washington Post. She also defended livestock agriculture on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
