Animal Activism in the time of Covid and Black Lives Matter

In this unique time, Atlanta animal activists Christopher Eubanks (Atlanta Save Movement) (shown in photo), and Melody Paris (Georgia Animal Rights & Protection) and Carrie Freeman (PEACE Club at GSU) discuss animal rights and vegan activism strategies for this pandemic era, related to what messages we should use to connect zoonotic diseases like Covid-19 to the meat trade and animal exploitation, and how we can still be effective activists in the shadow of Covid while "social distancing." The latter half of the show covers how animal activists can sincerely support the Black Lives Matter movement to continue its momentum toward social justice in this special moment.  

We conducted this 45 minute interview In July 2020 for a double radio show combining Second Opinion Radio (which Melody hosts) and In Tune to Nature (which Carrie hosts) on WRFG (Radio Free Georgia); the show originally aired on July 29, 2020 on wrfg.org 89.3FM radio.
