What is SCAS?

The Students for Critical Animal Studies (SCAS), rooted in animal liberation and anarchism, is an international association of students, from high schools, to online colleges, to graduate schools. These students are dedicated to the abolition of animal and ecological exploitation, and to dismantling all systems of oppression in hopes for a just, equitable, inclusive and peaceful world. SCAS Challenges students to view social justice from a more inclusive and intersectional perspective, while providing a forum for the meeting of academia and activism
This 7th annual conference will provide a platform for students, activists, and professors to assess animal liberation, oppression and domination theoretically and empirically. Our hope is that the conference will encourage both a productive reflection that challenges normalcy of systemic oppression and networking among those who do academic and pragmatic social justice work.
