Vegan Bill of Consistent Anti-Oppression: Centering Nonhumans Through Awareness of Interconnections
The Vegan Bill of Consistent Anti-Oppression outlines vital steps needed to ensure that mainstream veganism evolves into a movement that is truly effective and successful through awareness of the interconnections between Nonhuman Animal Rights and beyond.
These steps are the start towards actions to address key issues that continue to decenter nonhumans, while centering a certain type of human, and thus, preventing the NonHuman Animal Liberation Movement from moving forward.
Through this bill, we hope to get the mainstream vegan movement on the same page if we are going to achieve nonhuman liberation effectively and successfully.

The Sexual Politics of Meat
The Sexual Politics of Meat identifies the role of white patriarchal values in enabling and justifying the use of animals’ bodies for food. The presentation will explore the cultural anxieties being expressed through equations of meat and masculinity, the sexualizing and racializing of animals in representations, and the animalizing of women in images and discussions of reproductive politics—and how this ties into female reproductive exploitation in the use of cows for dairy.Auditorium full timetable
