Our Hen House is pleased to bring you the four-part audio series of the groundbreaking book, Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation. Our very own Jasmin Singer is the editor of this new anthology published by Lantern Books and Media, in collaboration with Encompass, Sentient Media, and, of course, Our Hen House.
The book is a collection of essays written by farmed-animal protection advocates who are committed to exploring and prioritizing racial equity as we work to create a more just animal protection movement. We wish to document our stories and processes in an exploratory space from which we can grow and use our words to hold ourselves and our peers accountable, ultimately creating new paths forward.
We recommend that you listen to the episodes below in order of their release dates which mirror each section in the book. We are honored to have collaborated with the essay authors who joined us to narrate their own stories.
- Part I: Awakening (launched on October 7, 2021)
- Part II – Introspection (launched on October 14, 2021)
- Part III – Accountability (launched on October 21, 2021)
- Part IV – Leading (launched on October 22, 2021)
