Why Animal Rights is a Humanist Issue

« Although most animal rights activists identify as atheist or agnostic, the atheist/humanist community has traditionally been unwilling to apply reasoned thought to speciesism and expand its circle of concern to other animals. This talk outlines some of the humanist/atheist traditions in the animal rights movement and highlights some of the core reasons why animal liberation and veganism align with a humanist approach.
