Neither Man Nor Beast: Patriarchy, Speciesism, and Deconstructing Oppressions

  • 10:30am until 7:00pm in EST
**please note: to receive access to this conference, you need to select the RSVP option on the link attached. DONATIONS, while always appreciated, will not register you to attend the conference.You are invited to attend a WEB-based conference on February, 23rd, 2014 to empower minds, bodies and communities. Moving beyond the typical boundaries of social justice activism, this conference will be advocating for intersectional liberation across species and social identities.

By creating a space to discuss critical feminist theories and offering our unique experiences under patriarchy, we will be re-evaluating how oppressions relate in our lives and our communities and how best to integrate this into advocacy for the rights of non-human and human animals alike. Critiquing the limitations of popular and mainstream animal rights campaigns currently, and by offering solutions, we hope to advocate for a more unified and diverse movement.
Ultimately, we wish to develop a more complete understanding of oppression and justice. Creating allies aware of the intersectionality of oppression can afford us more opportunities to collaborate in meaningful and mutually inspiring ways. Our diversity of ideas and experiences offer potential to build a more comprehensive, sustainable and effective movement against oppression. We need to strive for creating safer communities and more responsible allies, in hopes of beginning to truly break down the existing hierarchical power structures, rather than reinforcing them. This conference will function as a platform for dialogue, networking and organization with others in creating a more resilient rights liberation movement for all.

After you RSVP online…
everyone will be emailed a web-link, about a week before the conference, of the site where the event will be happening.
Presenters are expected to use web-cams during their presentations, and so attendees can watch & listen to a day long list of workshops from any computer. The website to be used also has an interactive platform, where everyone in attendance can listen and voice their thoughts about patriarchy & speciesism!
If you have more questions about how this online event will work, please comment or message!
