Challenging Whiteness in the Animal Advocacy Movement

In the recent issue of the Journal for Critical Animal Studies I published an article titled, “Challenging Whiteness in the Animal Advocacy Movement.” This Intervention is directed toward people who identify as white within the animal advocacy movement in the U.S. and Canada.

Alas, the issue of white hegemony within the movement has not been adequately addressed.  Angela P. Harris forces us to think about race and animal rights when she asks, “Should People of Color Support Animal Rights?” Click here for the article.
