Vegan Chews & Progressive News {6-12-15}

Chickpeas & Changes’s “Vegan Chews & Progressive News” series strives to promote artful vegan food and progressive discussion of social issues—both of which I view as necessary in fostering a society that prioritizes the well-being of all creatures (not just the rich, white, or human) over the continuous striving for profit/resource accumulation.

Just a reminder about the exciting news that Chickpeas & Change is now accepting submissions! I’m thrilled to be able to open this space up to voices from the anti-speciesist, feminist, anti-racist community. Check out this page for submission guidelines.

Hi, folks! I’ve got another round of Vegan Chews & Progressive News (# NewsandChews) for you today, featuring two hearty summer salads and an oh-so chunky granola that’s sure to start your morning off right. Oh, and of course lots of important news about why we should look critically at human rights rhetoric, an overview of the differences between sex and gender, and a compilation of Black vegans who are debunking the claim that “veganism is white.” Let’s get to it!

    I can’t wait to read about all the people listed on the 100 Black Vegans, some I reconize. Though I am surprised they didn’t have David Carter on the list! He is an ex-NFL player who is pretty active in the vegan community.
