|How to understand and talk about privilege to build a more empowered vegan movement|
Like the rest of society, the vegan movement has been plagued by abuses of power, from discrimination to sexual harassment. Much of the problem is caused by unexamined privilege – privilege people aren`t aware of. However, attempts to raise awareness of privilege often lead to infighting and end up reinforcing the very problem they`re trying to transform. In this talk, psychologist Melanie Joy presents a straightforward explanation of what privilege is, why it matters, and how to talk about it in a way that helps create a more inclusive and powerful vegan movement.
