Talk by Pattrice Jones & Lunch at Land of Kush

Sun, November 3, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Sorry for the last minute change, but I just learned that there's a real good speaker scheduled at the Baltimore Ethical Society, on Frankilin Street in downtown Baltimore, this Sunday 10:30 am. So I thought we might attend the talk and then meet a few blocks away at The Land of Kush, 840 N. Eutaw St. near Martin Luther King. Blvd. at 12:30.

Pattrice Jones, Author and Activist, will speak on "Animal Liberation and Social Justice: What's the Connection?"

Details: Ecofeminist author and activist Pattrice Jones will analyze the links between animal exploitation and social/environmental injustice. Speciesism is foundational to intra-species forms of oppression, such as racism and homophobia, providing ideological, psychological, and material support to injustice among people as well as to despoliation of the environment (which also hurts people). In explaining these connections, Jones will explain the concept of “intersectionality” as it is understood by feminist and antiracist scholars and activists, as well as the ecofeminist concept of the “logic of domination.” In closing, she will offer tips for building bridges across the animal, enivronmental, and social justice movements.

Speaker Bio: Pattrice Jones is an eco/anarcha-feminist writer, scholar, and activist who came to animal liberation through social justice work. Her activist history began in Baltimore in the 1970s and includes tenant organizing, anti-racist education, and direct action in a variety of flavors. She cofounded VINE Sanctuary, an LGBTQ-run organization which offers refuge to farmed animals while offering a progressive approach to animal liberation and associated agricultural reform. Her book, Aftershock: Confronting Trauma in a Violent World is a handbook for activists hoping to heal themselves as well as our violent and violated neighborhoods and ecosystems.

    Pattrice Jones gave a passionate talk with an important message. I love Land of Kush. This is the first time I had their vegan brunch. The pancakes, sausage, and home fries were all great.

      Pattrice gave an excellent talk! And I enjoyed meeting the cool people at Baltimore Ethical Society. I hadn't been there for several years, and enjoyed the day.

    I spoke to Pattrice, and she would like to come to lunch at Land of Kush. Thanks for organizing this, Don! The program at BES ends at noon, and afterwards there will be some snacks and a chance to talk one-on-one with Pattrice. You are welcome to stay, but f you want to go on ahead, I will accompany Pattrice to LoK.

      Yes, that will be great, Emil! It's no problem if our group members want to stay around for a while after the talk. We will all just get to Land of Kush when we get there.
