Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference PREVIEW VLOG by lauren Ornelas

Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference PREVIEW VLOG by lauren Ornelas

2016-08-27 
| by Editor | Posted in Vlog

In this series of blogs, we will be interviewing all our speakers at the upcoming Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference (#PIVC2016) at VegfestUK London, asking each of them a number of questions surrounding their work and other related topics.

 

Today we have lauren Ornelas, founder and executive director of the Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.), a vegan food justice nonprofit seeking to create a more just world by helping consumers recognize the power of their food choices. 

 

Here is one of lauren’s previous talks on the Power of our Food Choices, explaining the core theme of her work and giving our visitors a taste of what lauren will be discussing at London:

 

 

At the Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference at VegfestUK London 2016, lauren will be hosting 2 sessions (time slots TBA):

 

Food Justice: Your Food Choices can change the world

Just because something is vegan, doesn’t mean it is cruelty free. In this talk find out how do your food choices impact humans, animals and the environment around the globe. What does a just food system look like and how can you make it possible? Your food choices can have impacts beyond your own kitchen, including the exploitation of workers and animals, as well as the effects of environmental racism. Learn what you can do to help create a more just and equitable food system.

 

Discussion: Beyond Veganism: how to incorporate broader issues with your campaigns – should you or not?

Is it really easy for everyone to go vegan? lauren will discuss the achievements, shortcomings, and gaps of vegan advocacy with respect to various social ills. She will highlight both the inadequacy of vegan outreach in oppressed communities and communities of color, and how forms of vegan outreach have the potential to either dismantle or reinforce historical relationships of oppression and imperialism.

 

The conference takes place on the Sunday of VegfestUK London 2016, a massive vegan event which spans the whole weekend October 22nd 23rd 2016 at Olympia London.
