“Would you kill and eat a rabbit if you were stranded on a desert island?” Conversations about veganism often drift toward questions about what one would do in order to save one's own life. If you're a vegan, you've probably been asked this question or something quite like it. Actually, you've probably been asked the question more times than you could count. There are not many other moral commitments that invite such bizarre lines of questioning. For example, someone who takes a principled stance against human exploitation is unlikely to be asked whether she would use or benefit from child labor in [...]

As you walk onto an elevator, someone already standing inside notices your “Vegan”-labeled shirt. She says: “Oh, you're vegan, interesting! Why?” You notice that she'll be getting off a few floors up, so you only have enough time for a few quick sentences. How can you make the most of your opportunity? As we emphasized in another recent post, it's important to think about what you can reasonably achieve in the situation you're facing. It's a good idea to set goals based on a variety of considerations: how much time you have, whether you expect to see the person again, how [...]

It has become very popular to talk about “the myth” of humane animal use. Indeed, a number of animal protection organizations which have sprung up in the last decade have relied on this idea in their marketing and fundraising. Talk of “the myth” is everywhere. Of course, it's true that humane animal use is a myth. But there is not only one myth of humane use—there are two. And a failure to be clear about what each of these myths involves, and to distinguish between them, may have serious consequences. So what are these two myths? First, there is an empirical myth. It [...]

The IVA periodically hosts animal ethics reading groups, both locally and online. Our current online reading group is coming to a close later this month, and it is being capped off by a discussion led by Professor Gary Francione. Our reading groups work through many of the classic writings in animal rights theory and methodology, as well as some of the older philosophical writings that inform those works. Our aim is to help advocates familiarize themselves with the different competing views in animal ethics, to explore the foundations of abolitionist theory, and to work through some ongoing debates about how best [...]

We have received many inquiries about how to donate to us here at the IVA. Some people have been surprised to learn that we do not solicit donations and that, as a general matter, we refuse unsolicited donations. In our new position paper on donations, we explain our somewhat unusual position on this matter. As it turns out, explaining why we discourage donations requires us to take a step back and reflect on a broader set of related issues: on the significant risks and potential harms caused by formal organizations within our movement, on the importance of individual advocacy, on the [...]

Sharing resources and having discussions about veganism in a public space is one of the most popular and effective ways to engage in abolitionist education. When doing this kind of public outreach, you can have enriching conversations with large numbers of people, and you can help open their minds to the possibility of becoming vegan. If you don't have a wealth of experience doing public abolitionist educational work, you might have a bunch of questions, including: How can I encourage people to talk to me? What should I say? How can I communicate clearly and effectively? How can I ensure that [...]
