Anti-Oppression Outlook in Animal Advocacy

In recognition of Black History Month, we would like to offer some recommendations of awesome activists and platforms to explore, and then we will have an enlightening interview with the Managing Director of Encompass, Michelle Rojas-Soto. Encompass is a nonprofit organization fostering racial equity in animal advocacy. Their mission is to help make the farmed animal protection movement more effective by fostering racial diversity and inclusion. Michelle guides us into the worldview of anti-oppression work for humans and nonhuman animals simultaneously. She also explains the importance of evolving language and of using the term “global majority” instead of people of color.

Join us in helping to advance 21st-century activism that brings systematic oppressions together and recognizes the vital connections between justice issues.
