“Hunger, Meat, and the Banality of Evil”
Dawn Moncrief, founder and executive director of A Well-Fed World, will discuss some of the ways in which the use of animals for food increases global food insecurity by wasting and redistributing crops, fueling climate disruptions, and normalizing atrocities that bolster other forms of systemic violence and injustice.
Dawn Moncrief has been a social justice advocate for more than 20 years. She has two master’s degrees from The George Washington University: one in International Relations, the other in Women’s Studies, both focusing on economic development. Her work highlights the ways in which high levels of meat consumption in the U.S. and globally exacerbate global hunger, especially for women and children. She also draws attention to the negative consequences of animal agriculture on climate change and the deceptiveness of “humane” marketing. Learn more at http://awfw.org or @AWellFedWorld.
