E20: A Discussion with Jasmin Singer, Part 2: Animal Advocacy Activist and Editor of Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation

Background

A discussion with Jasmin Singer, Editor of Encompass Essays Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation….We had a conversation about an issue that is important to all of us and yet both her and I being white, have mostly seen the privileged side of this. So there are moments that we have a difficult time putting into words our thoughts or even recognizing the white privilege that we hold.

After the interview Jasmin contacted me with some of the same concerns I had already felt. Neither of us  being experts, Had we done Justice to the topic? Could we put this discussion out into the world? In the end we decided we should, because just as the book suggested, we were having the difficult conversation and trying to work out how we can make things better. And even if we don’t get it right we are going to try and we’re going to keep trying. So if nothing else, this is an excellent example of the kind of conversation that we all need to be having! Because we’re not going to get it right the first time, and making the effort is important. Perhaps by sharing our effort we will encourage others to do the same.

Jasmin’s career started twenty years ago as an AIDS-awareness activist with the educational theater company, and she later went on to become the Campaigns Manager for Farm Sanctuary. Jasmin is committed to using personal narrative as a means to create change; emboldening and collaborating with do-gooders to tell their stories; creatively using media as a means of activism; and continuing to learn about the endless overlaps within social justice, and let that information inform her change-making efforts.

Humans interact with animals every day of our lives. Even those without pets interact with animals in various ways: diet, wildlife, the clothes they wear. Even most medicines use animals in testing or in the medicine itself. This is a podcast about Anthrozoology: the study of interaction between humans and non-human animals.
