Encompass Essays: Pursuing Racial Equity in Animal Advocacy

A collection of essays written by farmed animal protection advocates who are committed to creating a more just animal protection movement.

Encompass Essays: Pursuing Racial Equity in Animal Advocacy is a collection of essays written by farmed animal protection advocates who are committed to exploring and prioritizing racial diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as we work to create a more just animal protection movement. We are a group of advocates who care deeply about this work, wish to document our stories and processes in an exploratory space from which we can grow, and would like to use our words to hold ourselves and our peers accountable and create new ways forward. The essayists contributing to this virtual anthology were all attendees of the 2020 inaugural Encompass DEI Institute. Encompass—the nonprofit that organized the Institute—aims to make the farmed animal protection space more equitable by working with organizations to operationalize racial equity and with individual advocates of the global majority by helping them cultivate their leadership potential.

Encompass Essays is a collaboration between Encompass, Our Hen House, and Sentient Media. Our Hen House is an award-winning media nonprofit that produces podcasts that aim to change the world for animals. Co-founder and co-host Jasmin Singer is the editor of the essay collection. Sentient Media—where these essays will roll out throughout 2020—is a robust digital platform that publishes deeply thoughtful articles about animal agriculture and its impact on the world, as well as fosters a fellowship program where newer journalists are mentored by seasoned ones. Down the road, we will invite you to join us for digital panels, collaborative discussions and trainings, and audio versions of the essays—which will be published on the Our Hen House podcast. As always, Encompass will continue to offer transformational DEI consulting and training to leaders and organizations who want to integrate DEI into their work.
