*Christopher Sebastian: Digital Media Literacy for Animal Rights / SUNDAY 29th

Designed to educate individual vegans and vegan organizations about how to leverage the digital media universe. Participants will learn how to read and interpret stories and posts on social media; how social media has been effectively used in political campaigns (including the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Brexit) and how animal liberation can use the same strategies; the role of graphic imagery in desensitizing the public; how organizations and individuals can diminish the effects of psychic numbing; what type of content attracts and retains audiences; how to shut down toxic communication in online spaces (including personal social media accounts, groups, and public pages); how to break through filter bubbles: the effectiveness of online petitioning; how to avoid sexual objectification of women and racial discrimination in online animal rights campaigning.

*This is a signed talk.
