Navigating dominant culture: Crafting solutions for genuine liberation


Room A + online

In this talk, we'll delve into the pervasive impact of dominant culture, largely influenced by white supremacy, on our organizing spaces within the animal rights movement. We'll explore how even our well-intentioned efforts might inadvertently replicate forms of oppression. Through definitions, examples, and potential solutions, I'll highlight the hidden yet impactful ways this culture manifests and persists. I'll emphasize the necessity of developing community-specific solutions to counter these subtle but potent remnants. Our responsibility is not only to acknowledge but to actively challenge these norms for a more impactful and inclusive activism.
