1:00 - Kim Socha - On Being Ignored: Ageism in the Animal Rights Movement [via Skype]

Animal activists fight to make other species visible while often ignoring older members of the movement. Indeed, organizations make it a goal to target youth with their messages of compassion. Is this strategy, or is it a type of ageism that is, in fact, doing great disservice to all?

2:00 - pattrice jones - Everybody is Someplace: Thinking Ecologically about Intersectional Activism

Activists must learn to think ecologically, both about the systemic problems we are trying to solve and our own places within them. In order to craft effective interventions, we must merge the insights of intersectionality with those of other ways of analyzing systems. Dairy is a case example of this.
