122: Direct Action Everywhere - DxE
Born and raised in Iowa, Matt Johnson grew up with plenty of farmers, hunters and fishers in his family. As a kid, he made a decision to not eat animals after making the connection that they were sentient beings, but it wasn't until 2013 that he went fully vegan.
Since 2015, Matt has been the press coordinator, as well as an open rescue investigator with the animal rights network Direct Action Everywhere, also known as DxE.
In this episode, Matt shares what it means to be involved in "direct action" as well as the legality of open-rescues under our current system.
