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.
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.
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.
A trained field biologist and naturalist, as well as a vegan of 25 years,
