I’m thrilled to be featured as the cover story of Barefoot Vegan‘s Sept/Oct online issue, which hits the Internet today!
The story features a 5-page interview, which gave me the chance to talk in-depth about issues that I really care about, including food as a social justice issue, African American health, feminism, and activism, as well as how veganism has profoundly shaped my life.
Here’s a sneak peak at the story:
One of the questions I was asked was this:
What advice would you give to others on how to promote a healthy vegan lifestyle to their loved ones?
And here’s part of my answer:
Focus first on you and be an example. Even if you’re a new vegan and you want your loved ones to know how horrible it is for chickens and cows on factory farms and how unhealthy it is to eat them. Even with all that urgency, my best advice is to focus on you and be an example. If your loved ones ask, then talk and watch videos, and read books, and go to vegan meetups, and visit vegan restaurants. And if they want to continue, great. And if they don’t, just continue on your journey and let things flow organically…
