“A wonderful book co-edited by Anthony J. Nocella II and Amber E. George, Vegans on Speciesism and Ableism moves disability and animal justice forward in brilliant and critical ways. This is one of the most important books in the animal rights movement.”–Green Theory and Praxis Journal
“Amidst the largest social uprising in our lifetime consideration for total liberation work is paramount to dismantling the interrelated ways racism, sexism, and classism work inextricably with ableism and speciesism. Vegans on Speciesism and Ableism: Ecoability Voices for Disability and Animal Justice edited by Anthony J. Nocella II and Amber E. George ignites readers to this collection action and invites us all to learn more about difference, diversity, and making real change.”–Dr. Johnny Lupinacci, Washington State University
“An urgent and necessary book that sheds light on the deeply entangled roots of violence and the oppression of humans with disability and the more-than-human world.”–Ângela Lamas Rodrigues, State University of Londrina, Brazil
“As a neurodivergent activist who has struggled with having ‘disabilities’ all of their life, I’ve oftentimes felt isolated within social movements due to ableism and a lack of understanding around ‘disabilities’. This book helps to bridge some of those gaps by challenging its readers to engage in direct change and to identify, critique, and deconstruct the ableist-speciesist connection.”–Jordan Halliday, Neurodivergent, Activist, Educator, and Former Social Movement Prisoner
“In the last ten years the ecoability movement has become a diverse and radical force for social justice, this book is necessary reading for scholars and activists who want to understand an ecoability framework which explores the intersections between disability, animal, environmental rights and liberation. The collection is a rallying cry against injustice, oppression and domination and for solidarity, mutual aid and total liberation.”–Will Boisseau, Director of Personnel, Institute of Critical Animal Studies
“This book draws from and continues to push forward the aphorism that diversity is an absolutely crucial concept for ecological, biological, and social flourishing which should be celebrated. While contributors center on connections between disability, nonhuman animals, and the environment, no form of oppression or social justice is left out, setting an example for social justice advocates who are not fully inclusive.”–Nathan Poirier, Co-Director, Students for Critical Animal Studies
“This wonderfully insightful book challenges us to think more deeply and critically about social justice efforts, liberatory practices, and the intersectionality of people, animals, the environment. It’s a must read for anyone committed to transformational social change.”–Jason Del Gandio, Co-editor, Spontaneous Combustion: The Eros Effect and Global Revolution
