Radical arguments for veganism may appeal to Black populations

A study from #UICLAS Sociology PhD student Victoria Brockett found that Black women are drawn to veganism for reasons beyond just health - animal rights, anti-racism, and environmental protection all play a role.
 
"Veganism is a particularly interesting subject for testing this question, Brockett said. Although the movement was founded in the 1940s based on an ethical stance against animal mistreatment, it has since emphasized other ideals to motivate people to give up animal-based products."
