About Vegan Place

It's their home. Let them roamI’m Lee Hall, and Vegan Place is my main web journal. I started it upon turning 30 in vegan years in late 2013, as a celebration of all vegan living means to me.

In February 2016 I joined the ranks of independent authors, and published On Their Own Terms: Animal Liberation for the 21st Century. Its purpose is twofold: to examine and advance animal-liberation theory for our age of climate change, and to offer guideposts for activism. I hope you’ll read and review it.

Another recent work, years in the writing, is an environmental law journal article on the importance of the end of hunting and forcible predator and deer control. It’s one of my few law review works that’s not hidden behind an academic publisher’s paywall; so go get it!

I’m on Twitter: @VeganPlace (vegan talk) or @Animal_Law (often legal issues pertaining to advocacy and habitat).

I thank A Well-Fed World for vital grant support.

Appreciation also goes out to Maryanne Appel, Mary Ann Baron, Charlotte Cressey, Bill Drelles, Meg Graney, Chris Kelly, Cathy McLaughlin Burt, Jack McMillan, Deb Thompson, Brenda Trerice, Justin Van Kleeck, and Rosemary Van Kleeck for helping to make this project possible! They and a few other wonderful supporters sponsor my writing through Patreon and are bringing this work of animal liberation into presentations in new communities every month.

  1. Thank you Lee for all you do for all human and nonhuman animals. Are you still associated with Friends of Animals?

  2. No: since 2013 I have not been affiliated with animal-advocacy groups other than grassroots collectives in Philadelphia and adjacent Chester County, and as a volunteer member of the Speakers Bureau for the American Vegan Society . I now work independently in animal-liberation philosophy and outreach.

    Thanks for your supportive words.

  4. We are getting there slowly, but surely. Unfortunately it seems that the U of A ,which is located in Tucson, doesnt seem to have a very “activist” student population. I think the same is true for ASU, which is in Tempe, just outside of Phoenix. There are several grassroot organizations in both cities, and a few are truly vegan in nature. Most of our animal advocacy groups seem to be more towards incremental reform only. “Abolition” , particularly in regard to ” pet-keeping”, is not a popular topic . The comprehensive outlook involving intersectionality is a pretty foreign concept at this point in time also. But I guess thats true everywhere.
