ANIMAL JUSTICE ACADEMY LUNCHTIME LIVE:
Reaching Out to Communities of Colour: Growing an Intersectional and Diverse AR Movement
Christopher “Soul” Eubanks is the founder of APEX Advocacy, a new Atlanta non-profit organization that uses community organizing, digital content, and grassroots activism to help communities of color defend themselves against animal industries.
Chris and APEX APEX is working to increase the number of BIPOC individuals who participate in animal activism by drawing attention to the intersections between the oppression of human and non-human animals, and advocating for collective liberation.
Chris believes that in order to shut down animal industries, the grassroots animal advocacy movement needs to actively attract BIPOC folks and amplify their voices, build bridges with other movements and communities, and recognize the interconnectedness between various systems of oppression.
In our AJA Lunchtime Live, Chris is going to share with us how he and Apex are trying to tackle these missions... and how we can too.
For a first-hand account of the importance of growing an inclusive and diverse movement, check out Chris's excellent Sentient Media article: As a Black Man, I Felt Uncomfortable Becoming an Animal Activist
*We invite folks to have their video on during this event to enhance the sense of community, but it’s not mandatory
