While we were at DC Vegfest we interviewed Elissa Lane, Assistant Campaign Manager for Humane Society International's (HSI) Farm Animal Protection Division for Latin America. Elissa works primarily with campaigns in Mexico, Brazil and Costa Rica focused on intensive confinement of chickens and sows. Since Brazil is one of the world' s largest meat producers and exporters, and because I lived there for 12 years, I had a special interest in hearing more about HSI's campaigns, challenges and breakthroughs there. Watch the interview to see what Elissa has to say and how you can help.
Founded in 2011, From A to Vegan strives to share perspectives about veganism in the 21st century. From food to fashion, leisure to sustainability, our goal is to provide noteworthy and useful information to anyone thinking about or currently leading a life free of animal products. We think it's important to present different points of view and challenge common misperceptions about people and practices that are considered vegan. We hope to open minds to the possibility of a sustainable way of life through alternative choice. In the process, we hope to learn things about ourselves as well.
