WHITE VEGANS MUST ACTIVELY SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER

I do not profess to be an expert in issues of racial inequality. I would, however, like to speak to White vegans about the importance of expanding our activism. Haven’t we, as a vegan community, already learned how to see the destructive biases and injustices that lurk beneath beloved cultural institutions?
