Lulu and the Lobster Webinar

Webinar with Dr. A. Breeze Harper: How Systemic Racism and Anti-Blackness Affect Animal Advocacy Culture in the USA


Each year, the Compassion Arts Festival features one partnered event that highlights a person or organization doing advocacy that has an indirect impact on animals, as a way of showing the connection between other forms of advocacy and the vegan principles of ahimsa. This year, we are pleased to host the Lulu and the Lobster webinar as a closed workshop for animal advocates. 

In this innovative webinar, Dr. Harper will introduce concepts and tools that engender alternative ways for animal advocates and organizations to integrate and implement inclusion and equity beyond cosmetic diversity. Such DEI tools (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) will include critical social fiction and anti-racism pedagogies within the context of animal advocacy. This is a micro workshop, meaning audience members will be given on overview of these concepts within a three hour time period. Participants will leave with beginning tools and frameworks to enhance how they engage with diversity, equity, and inclusion as animal advocates and/or vegans in the United States.
