Coreena Brown

Coreena uses music as a critical tool for her vegan activism and its commentary on socio-political content. The importance of seeing the common threads that, as Octavia Butler in her book “Xenogenesis Trilogy” stated “the hierarchical nature of humans”, is the very real human fatal flaw that stands in the way of animal liberation. Thru music, Coreena is looking to open the minds and hearts of many to the power of food choices and bring a broader awareness to speciesism.
