Christopher Sebastian McJetters is an author, researcher, and lecturer who educates people on veganism in a way that connects theoretical concepts to grassroots activists around the world. His primary focus is on how animal violence influences anti-Black racism, queer antagonism, and class discrimination throughout the global West. Christopher Sebastian received a grant to continue this work. He writes:
The content generated through this research broadens current theoretical understandings of animal rights by a.) addressing issues of race, gender, and sexuality and b.) helping to create a vegan/animal movement that is more inclusive and, thus, more representative. In short, it does the dual work of helping activists think theoretically and helping theorists remain grounded in activism.
