How Philanthropy in Farmed Animal Advocacy Reinforces White Bubbles

Farmed Animal Funders Executive Director Mikaela Saccoccio talks about realizing how easy it is to be insulated in a white vegan bubble, when Black, Indigenous, and other non-whites make up the majority of global vegans and vegetarians. She talks about how following the money shows that many of the philanthropic farmed animal advocacy organizations are white-led, resulting in funding being pooled in largely white spaces.

Moby

You have probably already heard of Moby, the acclaimed electronic musician who shot to fame in the 90s with his album, Play, but did you know that Moby is also a long-time vegan? Since as far back as 1987, Moby (real name Richard Hall) has been a vegan.
Moby was inspired to go vegan when he found a cat living at a garbage dump, naming him Tucker. Realising that he never wanted any harm to come to Tucker helped him make the connection that all other animals also deserve to live lives free of pain and suffering. Moby credits Tucker as being the one “….who turned me from a McDonald’s eating suburban kid into a vegan.”
On the subject of veganism, Moby has stated, “It’s my most deeply held belief; that every animal, human or not, is simply/basically/ineluctably entitled to their own life.”
Moby’s dedication to a vegan lifestyle is best evidenced by not only his campaigning for the rights of animals, but also by the prominent “vegan for life” tattoo on his neck and the words “animal rights” tattooed in large letters on his arms.
Not only does Moby support the animal rights movement with his words, he has also donated significant sums of money to animal welfare charities, and he is the organiser of the vegan music and food festival, Circle V Festival, which donates all profits to Mercy for Animals.
