 In the first of our series introducing you to the writers from “VEGAN VOICES – Essays By Inspiring Changemakers”, we look at the editor,  Dr. Joanne Kong.  Joanne has been recognized as one of the most compelling advocates for plant-sourced nutrition today. A frequent public speaker at universities, festivals, and conferences, her highly praised TEDx talk, “The Power of Plant-Based Eating,” is on numerous websites. She has toured extensively—in Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, and a three-week, ten-city tour of India—speaking on veganism. She is the author of If You’ve Ever Loved an Animal, Go Vegan (self-published), and is profiled in the book Legends of Change, about vegan women who are reshaping the world.

“Veganism is a revolution of the heart, a call for a world of greater peace, health and harmony created through expanding our circles of compassion.   

Veganism reflects a paradigm shift whereby one has begun to seriously question the underpinnings of a culture that has brought more and more harm to other beings, the natural world, and ourselves.”

– Joanne Kong

  • Dear Sandra,
    Thank you so much for posting this series for VEGAN VOICES: ESSAYS BY INSPIRING CHANGEMAKERS.
    To any of you reading this post, I hope that you will order a copy, and also for your friends, family, and anyone who is interested in the vegan path! Sandra is one of the 50+ writers, and what we share is how veganism is so much more than a “diet.” It’s a philosophy of how it is possible to raise humankind’s capacities to a higher level of caring. Each of the amazing writers has a unique, personal and compelling story–so inspiring and uplifting. Dr. Joanne Kong
