ARZone Intersectionality Interview 1 - Sarah K. Woodcock

What is Intersectionality and what does it have to do with vegan advocacy and animal rights? In the lead up to the pro-intersectionality conference scheduled for Vegfest London in October 2016, ARZone is presenting a special series of brief interviews addressing these and other questions. We'll be speaking with members of the global vegan community about what intersectionality means to them, and how both humans and other animals with whom we share the planet might benefit by our adopting an intersectional approach. We hope that you enjoy this informative special series on an important topic.

Episode 1 features our guest, Sarah K. Woodcock, Founder and (volunteer) Executive Director of The Advocacy of Veganism Society(TAVS). Sarah, an adopted Korean-American vegan, lives in the Minneapolis area of Minnesota in the United States with her husband and adopted nonhuman animals. Audio podcast, approx. 11 mins.
