009 Othering and Intersectionality

Callie and Nichole discuss the importance of inclusiveness, and learning to understand and accept the concept of privileges.

In This Episode

In our journey to be become better vegans (and better humans) we are trying to be more aware of othering, making sure we welcome people of all different backgrounds. While it is basic human nature to want to categorize each other, this can sometimes lead to oppression; as compassionate activists we need to be aware of this.

We also discuss intersectionality and how understanding privileges, especially which privileges we ourselves have, will help unite activists in deconstructing all the systems of oppression.
