Virtual Mini Conference Speakers & Topics for 2019

Doreen A. Yomoah

Veganism, Sustainable Development, and the North/South Divide

This talk will raise questions about the international development and the role of privilege

in defining the responsibilities of vegan activists of color in helping to spread

consistent anti-oppression around the world.



Doreen is a writer and organizer in Switzerland.

Prateek Gautam

A Dalit's Perspective: Casteism and Speciesism


This talk will discuss the interconnections of casteism and speciesism, including casteisms' dependence on

nonhuman animal exploitation to justify both human and nonhuman oppression

(a term coined casteist speciesism).


Prateek is an activist, post graduate student, and musician based in India.

Margaret Robinson


Decolonizing Body, Mind, and Spirit

This talk will examine how approaching veganism from an Indigenous (L’nu/Mi’kmaw)

perspective can help undo colonial damage and support food sovereignty.


Margaret is a two-spirit L’nu scholar from Eski'kewaq, Nova Scotia

and a member of the Lennox Island First Nation.

Her work examines the impact of intersecting oppressions and draws on critical,

postcolonial, and queer theories, intersectionality, and third wave feminism.

towards liberation for both humans and nonhumans.
