Season 1, Episode 17. In this episode, we hear from lauren, from the Food Empowerment Project. lauren explains how food justice is central to FEP’s advocacy for social justice for both human and nonhuman animals. We hear about some of the initiatives taking place, including the chocolate list – and how a plantbased diet doesn’t necessarily equal an ethical one. We also hear from lauren about the importance of a decolonial approach to understanding diets and how chapter-based activist groups can be damaging to the grassroots movement.
