Season 1, Episode 18. In this episode, we hear from Iye. Iye speaks about the benefits of stepping away from the mainstream vegan movement. Instead, she focuses on local activism in her community, mainly with Plant the Power 614. Iye explains how a focus on the health aspects of veganism and food accessibility doesn’t necessarily mean compromising on animal ethics. She also sees a need for more exposure of the voices of black, indigenous, people of colour, for the movement to really move forward.
