Food x Faith Veganuary: Interfaith Discussion for a Just World
Enjoy this beautiful discussion on the intersection of food and faith during Veganuary, a global effort that helps people go vegan in January to advance justice in the world and promote spiritual growth. Here we explore how we can leverage and align our personal beliefs with our diets and contribute to our closeness to the Divine.
Our speakers include: VegFund Board president Stephanie Redcross West, head of Main Street Vegan Victoria Moran, and Jewish Veg executive director Jeffrey Spitz Cohan and engagement director Michael Gribov.
We also discuss A Prayer for Compassion, an award-winning documentary and the only film ever made to explore the intersection of food, animals, and religion—from an interfaith perspective.
The event took place ahead of Martin Luther King Jr Day, so we examined how the Judeo-Christian imperative for a plant-based lifestyle advances justice and compassion for all, and builds our inner sense of peace. We will also responded to your questions and shared best practices for faith-based vegan advocacy, and how to spread this message effectively to others.
