      Pro-Intersectional Veganism: Creating a Movement that Works for Everyone

      The fight for social justice is as old as humankind. Yet in the late 1960’s the black feminist movement revealed that our varying identities can intersect, causing unique forms of oppression to be experienced within subsets of oppressed communities. This speech will focus on what a pro-intersectional approach makes available to those fighting for animal rights, and how educating ourselves about the suffering experienced by our fellow humans can make us better advocates for the animals. It will highlight the unintentional failings of the mainstream vegan approach, as well as how we can increase our effectiveness. By aligning ourselves with other social justice movements, audiences will discover how greater compassion for our fellow humans could mean animal liberation in our lifetime.
