You are invited to attend a web-based conference on February, 23rd, 2014 to empower minds, bodies and communities. Moving beyond the typical boundaries of social justice activism, this conference will be advocating for intersectional liberation across species and social identities.

By creating a space to discuss critical feminist theories and offering our unique experiences under patriarchy, we will be re-evaluating how oppressions relate in our lives and our communities and how best to integrate this into advocacy for the rights of non-human and human animals alike. Critiquing the limitations of popular and mainstream animal rights campaigns currently, and by offering solutions, we hope to advocate for a more unified and diverse movement.

Ultimately, we wish to develop a more complete understanding of oppression and justice. Creating allies aware of the intersectionality of oppression can afford us more opportunities to collaborate in meaningful and mutually inspiring ways. Our diversity of ideas and experiences offer potential to build a more comprehensive, sustainable and effective movement against oppression. We need to strive for creating safer communities and more responsible allies, in hopes of beginning to truly break down the existing hierarchical power structures, rather than reinforcing them. This conference will function as a platform for dialogue, networking and organization with others in creating a more resilient rights liberation movement for all.

Animal Liberation Ontario (ALO)

ALO (https://www.facebook.com/animalliberationontario) aims to enable more people to become informed & involved about oppressions and campaigns for liberation. ALO exists as an online resource to be used in such a way to make human and nonhuman animal liberation a more accessible and achievable ideology. We wish for everyone to grow in understanding about the many ways we can help support such causes, and ultimately how they can achieve a more significant impact for animals everywhere.
