Brenda Sander: Making the Case for Vegan Food Justice
Lancaster, PA

I was honored to be invited and asked to photograph this fantastic and insightful lecture by Brenda Sanders entitled Making the Case for Vegan Food Justice. Brenda Sanders is a food justice activist who works to bring healthy, affordable and sustainable food choices to low-income communities in Baltimore City. Check out her full bio on her website to read about all of the amazing projects and community resources she has founded and been a part of, including the Afro-Vegan Society, Thrive Baltimore, Eating for Life, Plant Based Jumpstart, Vegan SoulFest, and PEP Foods.

Brenda’s presentation focused on the depth and breadth of human rights violations driven by animal-based food production systems, their effects on low-income communities, and the impact that introducing and supporting a vegan, sustainable diet to low-income communities could have on fighting food injustice. She covered a range of topics including:

  • Food insecurity
  • Healthcare and life expectancy inequality
  • Environmental racism
  • Displacement of indigenous people for animal-based food sourced
  • Immigrant labor abuse
  • Slaughterhouse worker suffering
