speciesism 1 : prejudice or discrimination based on species; especially : discrimination against animals. 2 : the assumption of human superiority on which speciesism is based. – Merriam-Webster

Is speciesism something we should be concerned about?  Does it impact humans negatively?  Do the differences between humans and animals justify different treatment?  Let’s talk about these questions and more.  We hope to see you there!
