4:00 - Dr. Will Tuttle - The Hidden Roots of Social Justice Issues (via Skype)
Dr. Harper will talk about her 10 year engagement within the USA ethical Foodscape as a critical race feminist scholar and intersectional anti-racist. She'll speak on how certain challenges around normative whiteness and racism became opportunities to strengthen her social justice praxis.
During this talk, Sarah will discuss the foundation of justice--its implications and its limits for the animal rights movement, as well as how vegans can help take the movement to its next stage. With a special focus on pro-intersectionality, Sarah will discuss what will help and hinder the movement's progress.
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.
pattrice jones is a cofounder of VINE Sanctuary, an LGBTQ-led farmed animal refuge in the USA. An ecofeminist scholar and writer, pattrice also has worked as a tenant organizer and antiracist educator. Find VINE online at www.vinesanctuary.org
Veganism continues to mature into a movement right on the verge of sweeping the globe. The internet fosters an ENORMOUS number of people connecting and communicating, more and more concerning vegan. How can we engage more respectfully, and thus effectively, benefiting all life on our planet?
Dr. Will Tuttle offers a deeper look at the consequences of animal agriculture. The talk will endeavor to illuminate the cultural and psychological impacts of herderism as the primary organizing and compelling force in our world. The presentation will include some of the essential keys to vegan and justice advocacy that is effective and rewarding.
