11:00 - Dawn L. Moncrief - Hunger and Animal Farming as Interconnected Abuses of Power

Hunger and the use of animals for food both result from systemic abuses of power in distinct yet interconnected ways. This along with the causal relationship between animal-sourced food consumption and disparities in food access will be examined, with the disproportionate harm caused by gender and racial biases highlighted.

Is it really easy for everyone to go vegan? lauren will discuss the achievements, shortcomings, and gaps of vegan advocacy with respect to various social ills.
