Interconnected Oppression: Linking Veganism and Other Struggles - Columbus Metropolitan Library - Northside Branch - Columbus

Columbus Veg Community (CVC) is thrilled to host another lecture event with beloved local vegan activist and educator: Seth Josephson, Ph.D!What does meat-eating have to do with sexism, racism, ableism, and other forms of oppression? During this talk Seth Josephson, Ph.D., will outline an “intersectional” approach to animal advocacy. Rather than seeing things like white-supremacy, sexism, and exploitation of animals as separate, an interconnected approach looks for how each of these harmful systems reinforces one another and how each is supported by a shared ideology of othering. Seeing all oppressions as connected, we can work together to pull injustice out by the root. We can work toward the ultimate goal of “total liberation.”Columbus Veg Community (CVC) is asking attendees for a $5 donation to help cover costs of this event. Every attendee will be given a raffle ticket to win one of several prizes, including a $15 vegan restaurant gift certificates, a Freely Vegan gift basket, a Berry Vegan Delights sampler, and more! Every attendee will also get to sample delicious vegan foods from local businesses including: And Juice Co., Lifestyle Cafe, Nutraja Cookies and More by Doshi Dough, LLC., and Berry Vegan Delights. In addition to the food and raffle there will be free literature including recipe booklets, starter guides and more!
