Gabriela Cowperthwaite, director of the hit documentary “Blackfish,” was very kind to allow us to interview her for this week’s VP blog. Blackfish is a powerful and compelling film that exposes the cruel, inhumane, and immoral practices of Sea World. Gabriela talks about how making the movie has impacted herself personally, including the way she views the relationships between humans and other animals.
This week we welcome Paul Graham to the blog. Paul is author of the eBook “Eating Vegan in Vegas: If It Can Happen Here, It can Happen Anywhere,” available from Sullivan Street Press. This fascinating book is the story of Paul’s 365-day challenge to eat one vegan meal per day in a restaurant in Las Vegas. For today’s blog, Paul discusses his own vegan journey and how he has witnessed the vegan movement take hold in the unlikely city of Las Vegas.
We are excited to have Ginny Messina, nutritionist and renowned vegan author, as a guest blogger this week.
