Liberating Animals Through Christian Vegan Advocacy
For Activist Appreciation Month this year, we’re showcasing our newest approach to animal advocacy - faith-based vegan advocacy! Shepherding All God's Creatures (SAGC) is making waves in the Christian community with its blog. SAGC advocates for veganism and will co-host a summer conference on animal advocacy complete with vegan food, where veganism will be discussed as the ideal way to manifest caring for animals and the planet via lectures and workshops. Join our webinar with SAGC blogger Jessica Lopez to learn more about Christian vegan advocacy!
An animal-lover who grew up on a small farm in rural Ohio, Jessica was “called to speak for God’s animals” after learning about industrialized animal cruelty in the food, fashion, and pharmaceutical industries. Once she found the biblical case for veganism, Jessica became convinced that people have misunderstood much of scripture, including our understanding of "dominion" over animals. Now Jessica devotes her life to liberate both animals and the people who affect them through a better understanding of scripture.
Jessica joins our Vegan Spirituality Online Gathering on Thursday, February 8, 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. PT (8 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET). Participate by phone or online with your hosts Peace to All Beings author Judy Carman and In Defense of Animals’ Sustainable Activism Campaign Director Lisa Levinson.
