1:00 - Brenda Sanders - A Comprehensive Intersectional Approach to Vegan Activism

This talk gives a foundational understanding of why an intersectional approach to vegan outreach is important, shows examples of what this kind of activism looks like, and illustrates the pitfalls of taking a non-intersectional approach when doing vegan activism. I will be using examples from our Food Justice work in the States to demonstrate how important it is to understand how to effectively engage with people who live at the intersection of multiple forms of oppression.

2:00 - lauren Ornelas - Food Justice: Your Food Choices can change the world

Just because something is vegan, doesn't mean it is cruelty free. In this talk find out how do your food choices impact humans, animals and the environment around the globe. What does a just food system look like and how can you make it possible? Your food choices can have impacts beyond your own kitchen, including the exploitation of workers and animals, as well as the effects of environmental racism. Learn what you can do to help create a more just and equitable food system.

4:00 - Omowale Adewale - Why Intersectionality is a Struggle (by Skype)

Omowale presents the basis for intersectionality and the oppressive conditions involving sex, race, class, 3rd world, etc. Social change is about justice being fundamental and primary to peaceful conditions. Omowale explains why we must expect, respect and welcome the narrative of the oppressed and all animals' will to rage and provide no peace until there is justice for all.
