Anti-vax and Ableism

Davita Trev with Claire 5 September 2021 9


Background
share close

Trev and Davita are joined by seasoned activist Claire to discuss the crossover between ableism and anti-vax sentiment in the vegan community. We critique issues around the accessibility within the movement, especially for people with an immunodeficiency. This is
particularly timely considering the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccine hesitancy.
