NSCC’s free 42nd Forum on Tolerance, “The Intersection Between Human and Animal Rights”
Both animals and human beings in minority categories are exploited by the machine of white cisgender patriarchal Capitalism. Example: The meat industry exploits both animals and workers at the same time. In this Forum, we will explore this intersection and how being humane to animals can increase our overall humanity.
This free, two-day, two-campus event is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, April 24, 11a.m. – 1:45 p.m. at NSCC’s Danvers Campus, 1 Ferncroft Road, Room DS106B and on Thursday, April 25, 8a.m.-12:30p.m. at the Lynn Campus gym, 300 Broad Street.
