Chickpeas & Changes’s “Vegan Chews & Progressive News” series strives to promote vegan food (an outgrowth of anti-speciesism) and progressive discussion of social issues—both of which I view as important 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.
Hello, all! Ready for another installment of Vegan Chews & Progressive News (# NewsandChews)? Good, because for this week’s recipes I’m sharing with ya’ll some well-spiced eggplant bites, a unique and oh-so-summery ice cream, and an easy way to eat up lots of cabbage. For stories, I’ve got an article lambasting Peter Singer’s utilitarian philosophy (because you really can’t have too many), a documentary on the continuing response to Hurricane Katrina, and an important book in the progressive education canon. No commentary on these ones from me today, folks–I’ve gotta go pack up my life in Madison to return to school in New York. Catch ya later!
