Antonia Roach is from Easton, Pennsylvania but has strong family ties to Evansville, Indiana. Her preferred pronouns are she, her, hers, and enjoys hiking, cooking/baking, painting (refinishing old furniture), and reading. Her main goal in grad school is to highlight the experience of Black people within a movement where they've been regarded as invisible. By highlighting these experiences, I hope to increase the representation of People of Color in the mainstream vegan movement, shed light on adjacent issues for communities of color such as food deserts, and record and increase knowledge related to the societal factors that influence People of Color to support, or not support, a social movement.
Antonia’s post-graduate goal is to pursue a professorship and in general, be able to continue to share and advance my research in a way that uplifts and supports communities of color.
Her research interests are Social movements, Access, Race, and Gender broadly (Black men and the vegan movement specifically).
