Portraying writer Iris Murdoch in the movie Iris really opened Dame Judi Dench‘s eyes to the effects of Alzheimer’s. She’s the latest celebrity to throw in her support for The Alzheimer’s Society, a charity working for the rights of dementia sufferers.

Dame Judi says: ‘Dementia is an appalling condition that affects not just the person diagnosed, but everyone around them. I began to understand the devastating impact Alzheimer’s has while playing the role of Iris Murdoch. No one should have to face dementia alone and the Alzheimer’s Society is here to make sure they don’t.’

The group has just launched The Vice-Presidents, Patrons, and Ambassadors program which is supported by politicians, scientists, and celebrities.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
