Welcome to a shared studio for the art of animal liberation.

I appreciate support from those who love the work, learn from it, inspire it, and sense its potential to transform humanity.

On Their Own Terms: Animal Liberation for the 21st Century
(link; reviews) is my newest work. We can only get to animal liberation by cultivating a new human identity in relation to Earth’s other life. Patrons are helping me get this goal from the pages of a book to communities of people.

Lee led us in a thought-provoking discussion with an emphasis on respect for animal rights and habitat. Lee is a skilled and interesting presenter whose perspectives elicited a lively interchange. Group members unanimously agreed that we would like Lee to return to speak with us again. I heartily recommend Lee as a presenter and discussion leader!

My background is in animal law, and includes six years of university teaching. I've recently invested in an advanced law degree related to climate science and policy. I write for online magazines and law journals on changing policy to end the vicious cycle of predator persecution and deer control. With your support, I can expand the body of knowledge about climate and habitat, and help increase the "cultural carrying capacity" for free-living animals.

I dedicate my legal education to developing theory and advocacy materials to advance a movement. 

I work directly for you and your community.



You, as a patron, can enable my continued work in animal-liberation theory. For $1 a month or more, you can further a crowdfunded project that brings me to conferences, public expos,  classrooms, and other places where people gather for discussion. Become a patron of animal-liberation philosophy in the making! Together, let's shift humanity's mindset from supremacy to respect.

Be a patron of the art of animal-liberation philosophy.

By joining a community of supporters through Patreon, you can fund the transfer of my research and writing into public advocacy presentations, which are:

  • Connecting dots from animal ethics to environmentalism.
  • Painting a picture of a new human identity in relation to Earth’s other life.
  • Showing how vegans spare animals from being turned into commodities—and how the commitment to becoming vegan can and does relieve the pressure on our whole global bio-community.
Public presentations are vital to getting the word out about animal liberation. Your support both inspires and enables my active contributions.

I first met Lee ten years ago, when I was in college. We invited Lee to speak at a student-led speaker series, and that first encounter has shaped the way I think about how we interact with other species from that day forward.

Hearing Lee speak about veganism and animal liberation was one of those rare moments where different parts of my brain seemed to click together into place, and I thought “of course!” That feeling has continued unabated every time I attend one of Lee’s workshops or read Lee’s latest book, which was hours of...

“Ah, of course!” “Of course!” “Of course!”

Lee is incredibly respectful and kind toward any person in attendance at Lee’s events. I sincerely believe that most people, if exposed to Lee’s thinking either via writings or speaking events, would come away pondering a perspective they just never previously had the opportunity to encounter.

You'll already have access to my patron-only feed. Now I invite you to engage with it. Every month, I'll post a comment or question you send me about my work or the work of any animal-liberation writer and address it on my patron-only feed that goes out to all supporters.
Advocate
$5 or more per month 4 patrons
In addition to the two benefits for $1 and $3 supporters listed above, you'll further receive a personal thank-you on the "about" section of my blog, Vegan Place, for the duration of your sponsorship.
Muse
$15 or more per month 3 patrons
At this level or higher, along with all of the above-listed offerings, you'll get a brief blog post on a specific animal-advocacy issue, with my thanks. Please let me know the topic you'd like to see addressed. This will prompt up to one inspired post a month like the post inspired by Bill on the foundation for vegan living, and the post inspired by Justin on the argument that vegans kill more animals than anyone by eating crops.

I'd like you to have a signed copy of my newest book (one time only), plus all previous rewards. The note of thanks to you on the "about" page of my vegan blog will be permanent (assuming you're OK with that).
Producer
$50 or more per month 1 patron
In addition to all of the above tokens of esteem, I will share an original presentation description with you for input, and, if you are amenable to being publicly thanked, you will be named in one of my monthly talks as the co-sponsor (along with the group inviting the talk).
Liberator
$100 or more per month 1 patron
Liberator status. I salute the divine in you! In addition to receiving all of the above tokens of esteem, you're an official sponsor of my work. I couldn't be more grateful. Support such as yours translates into significant segments of time for developing theory and guidelines for social change.
Goals
$285 of $709 per month
A conservative estimate to support one educational presentation and attendant advertising monthly, in the U.S. northeast. Internet/data plan/equipment required ($275); work hours ($160: for two per diem net wages forfeited, a low-to-average amount of time needed to handle a working trip); transportation (generally, the cheapest transit to and from one monthly event is $200, excluding room and food); monthly social media promotion: $10 (more in months when support received exceeds presentation costs). Thus a starting goal of $645. An added $64 should cover credit card transaction fees and Patreon's 5% cut. This goal covers all basic research and event costs. It does not cover work-product costs, so it's basically break-even sustenance.
