The Food Movement v. Animal Liberation

May 25 @ 3:30 pm - 4:20 pm

I will be at the Animal Liberation Conference to speak about the role that the food movement plays in thwarting the animal liberation movement, and what we can do about it: As the food movement becomes the anchor for society’s natural resistance to animal liberation, it is urgent that vegans get involved as leaders so that our ethic becomes normative.  See the full program here.
