Event Description
A panel discussion on the ways forward for animal liberation politics in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

With the COVID-19 crisis, animal agriculture and the capitalist food system are under scrutiny like never before. What will animal rights politics look like after the crisis?

Join us for an interactive webinar on the role of animals and capital in the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to develop anti-capitalist strategies in animal advocacy and the kinds of politics that may be possible as we emerge from this crisis.
