Reclaiming the Integrity and Authenticity of Our Work for Justice
Conference Center at U of Pitt-Johnstown
450 Schoolhouse Road
Open to attendees of the 2013 Vegetarian Summerfest conference.
Experienced activists in the US and around the world are troubled by the direction taken in recent years by organizations that dominate animal advocacy. How can we clarify the boundary between an authentic justice movement and the compromised, co-opted “McMovement” that has aligned itself with animal exploiters, increasingly becoming an unapologetic vehicle for promoting “humane” animal products? How can we become more clear about which forms of activism build the foundation of the society we want to help create, and which forms undermine it? Bring your questions and ideas to this structured dialogue.
