Christopher Sebastian McJetters is an animal justice advocate who educates people on veganism in a way that connects theoretical concepts to grassroots activists around the world. His primary focus teaches how animal violence influences anti-black racism, queer antagonism, and class discrimination throughout the global West. He received a grant to continue this work, under the name Christopher Sebastian, in the form of lectures, videos, and online content. 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.
