Reframing The Movement to Fight Speciesism

December 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The animal liberation movement is evolving. Our actions are getting bolder and more appropriate for non-human interests but what about our messaging? We need to refocus the entire movement into a social justice movement against speciesism. We have pushed an agenda based on a partial solution, veganism, and failed to create the tension in society toward the problem, speciesism.

We will go into great detail in this full day interactive lecture and workshop event on how we need to restructure our language, messaging and actions as we reframe the entire movement into one targeting and fighting speciesism.

At War For Animals Niagara and Animal Liberation Alliance London have already refocused our campaigns to 100% anti-speciesist messaging and actions. Come find out how effective and tactically advantageous an anti-speciesism campaign can be. Find out how to organize and execute anti-speciesist campaigns in Toronto.

This is a primer for the first ever Speciesism Summit being planned for March 2020 in Niagara Falls.

This is an all day workshop of interactive lecture style presentations on why and how we need to evolve our messaging in the animal liberation movement toward one that aims to challenge, deconstruct and dismantle speciesism. The day will be broken down into six sessions including and introduction period, five topical sessions, a lunch and group discussion period to end the day. The event is at no cost to attendees and the lunch will be provided. We look forward to your attendance and welcome everyone. This event is accessible and a safe space for everyone.
