Veganism and Humanism

A session at FtBConscience 2

Sunday 2nd February, 2014

3:00pm to 4:30pm

How could veganism & humanism possibly be related? Our panelists don't think they're so very different from each other. They will explore the intersections between veganism and humanism, while addressing some of the more privileged aspects of the vegan community.

Simon Keegans

Scaredy cat brat. bio from Twitter

Simon is an underactive vegan, feminist, and leftist activist out of central Ohio. When she's not working at her growup job, she spends her time caring for four cats and four rabbits, playing board games with friends, cooking, crafting, and generally trying to carve out someplace nice on this hell-rock. She's currently having her mind blown reading "Normal Life" by Dean Spade, and thinks you should too.

Ryan Craig

Rad things: computers, space, bicycles, anarchy, Jiu-Jitsu, science, queerness, veganism.

Ryan is a white male (admittedly), an atheist (incidentally), and a queer feminist vegan anarchist (enthusiastically). He likes to ride bicycles, learn new things, and undergo fairly regular paradigm shifts. He shares his home with two humans, two cats, one dog, and one guinea pig. He lives in Columbus, OH, and eats about a gallon of peanut butter a week.
