launched the first-ever Vegan Earth Day with a festival that included
the『Vegan Earth Day for a Vegan World』seminar.

to her busy schedule, she graciously shared her insights about
society’s advancement toward ideal moral values through an
inspirational video message.

seminar included Rip Esselstyn, vegan firefighter and author of the New
York Times bestseller 『The Engine 2 Diet』; Christine Garcia, vegan
animal rights activist, founder and lead counsel of the Animal Law
Office in San Francisco; Chris Derose, animal rights and activist,

Your Face: From Actor to Animal Activist』;
Joanelle Romero, Native
American vegan and producer of the first American Indian internet
television channel, Red Nation Television Channel; and Janice Belson,
vegan Executive Director of Medicines Global.
The seminar was
also covered by KTLA, a television station in Southern California.On
