The victims beyond the slaughterhouse are impoverished communities and minorities.
This talk is the abridged version of Christopher Sebastian's Columbia class on power, oppression, and privilege where participants learn how anti-black racism and class discrimination are related to animal cruelty, and how incorporating animal rights and food empowerment into a broader socio-political agenda creates meaningful justice for all persons.
Participants will also hear why the mainstream vegan movement's focus on food choices absent of the inclusion of an intersectional socio-political platform is just consumer capitalism for hobbyists.
About the Speaker
The speaker, Christopher Sebastian, is a longtime social justice advocate who writes for Vegan Publishers, lectures at Columbia University, and is a board member of Peace Advocacy Network. His work examines the complex relationship between animal violence environmental racism, classism, and capitalism. He also does activism for LGBTQ communities as well as homeless people.
This event will talk about a huge issue that is often ignored. It touches on environmental racism such as how the most harmful things about industrial farming, like animal waste, are often near Black and brown poor communities. It also serves to elevate the voices of underrepresented minorities that are often over looked in the white, male dominated vegan space.
Pizza will be served!
