Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference
London, England - October 23
We are thrilled to sponsor, speak, and exhibit at the Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference organized by VegFestUK in London.
The conference will provide an introduction to the concept of intersectionality, with a focus on the ways in which different forms of oppression are interconnected, compounded, and mutually-reinforced.
This conference will be part of the larger VegFestUK London, expecting more than 12,000 attendees.
AWFW's Dawn Moncrief will present:
"Hunger and Animal Farming as Interconnected Abuses of Power."
Global hunger and the use of animals for food both result from systemic abuses of power in distinict yet interconnected ways. These connections will be examined, along with the relationship between the consumption of animal products and disparities in food access. The disproportionate harm caused by gender and racial biases will also be highlighted.

Food Choices Documentary
The AWFW grantee, Food Choices, explores the impact that food choices have on our health, the planet, and other species.
From director Michal Siewerski, the film follows his three-year journey interviewing more than 30 top experts around the country, including: doctors, nutritionists, environmental researchers, biochemists, athletes, chefs, writers, and many others to get answers to his question of what is the healthiest and most sustainable diet for ourselves and future generations.
One reviewer calls this inspiring new film a combination of Forks Over Knives, Cowspiracy, and Earthlings.
