This month, the Animal Book Club is reading Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation edited by Jasmin Singer, Aryenish Birdie, and Michelle Rojas-Soto.

From the publisher:

"Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation is a collection of writings by farmed animal protection advocates who are committed to exploring and prioritizing racial equity as they work to create a more just animal protection movement. The essayists, whose work was originally published in Sentient Media, and is reprinted with their permission, were all attendees of Encompass’s 2020 Racial Equity Institutes.

Essays include:

    “From Speaking Up for Animals to Becoming an Antiracist,” by Rachel Huff-Wagenborg

    “Using Research and Data to Create an Inclusive Animal Rights Movement,” by Brooke Haggerty

    “How My Cultural Identity Informs My Animal Advocacy,” by Unny Nambudiripad
