Leigh-Chantelle from Viva la Vegan! gives her Ethics Beyond the Plate talk at (Australia's biggest vegan event) World Vegan Day in Melbourne.
Sunday 23 October, 2016
With the mainstream media watering down the meaning of veganism with it's dietary, fitness and weight-loss focus, is the vegan movement losing its core ethics? There are many reasons and benefits to go - and stay - vegan. Including the environment, labour rights, human rights, animal rights, ethics, feminism, and other intersectionality issues. How can we learn from other social justice movements to move forward in a more inclusive and intersectional way? If more people stay vegan long-term due to ethical reasons, how can we promote consciousness-raising, non-oppression, non-objectification, and anti-consumerism for and beyond the vegan lifestyle?
Find out more about how we can work together as vegans and activists to promote inclusivity, learn from other movements, and lead by example to promote compassion to ALL we encounter. Learn how to become a more effective activist and make these much-needed changes with Leigh-Chantelle's Ethics Beyond the Plate talk.
