The Power of Storytelling in Animal Advocacy
with Indra Lahiri

Not only is storytelling the ultimate learning tool, but it can invoke the kind of emotion that fuels major behavior changes.

In this Animal Justice Academy Lunchtime Live, renowned storyteller and animal sanctuary founder Indra Lahiri will teach us how we can become adept at this powerful advocacy tool in speaking and writing.

We'll talk about:

  • the importance of framing animals as individuals as opposed to a monolith.
  • specific techniques for how to tell compelling stories
  • the best animal stories Indra has heard and told
  • language choices to watch out for
  • how to apply basic storytelling techniques to simple communications like social media posts, emails, and interviews

*We invite folks to have their video on during this event to enhance the sense of community, but it’s not mandatory

About Indra Lahiri:

Indra Lahiri, Ph.D. was called “a storyteller, dreamer, and friend of the animals,” by the Anishinaabe Medicine Man who adopted her into the tribe of the White Earth Nation, naming her “Ishkudeikwe” (Woman of the Fire). She has rescued thousands of animals from dire circumstances around the world. She tells their stories in her writing and speaking and lives amongst them between her travels.

In the course of her decades of learning from the animals, Indra founded Indraloka Animal Sanctuary (2005) and since 2014 has volunteered her time as a consultant, helping other sanctuaries to succeed. In addition, she has taught, mentored, coached and keynote addressed tens of thousands of people on a range of topics that are always, at their core, based on ethical leadership and compassion for all. Indra has spoken at the Animal Rights National Conference and International Animal Rights Conference annually for the past several years, in addition to keynote addressing audiences as varied as Asian scientists, bloggers, vegfests, and peace activists.

Her award-winning blog, which chronicles sacred moments with rescued animals, is followed by tens of thousands of readers on every continent. Indra is grateful to have the opportunity to dedicate her life to helping traumatized animals rediscover joy, love, and trust.
