Elana Kirshenbaum, New Leaf
As a young child, Elana Kirshenbaum relished any chance to connect with animals, fed her school lunch daily to a stray dog, and wrote about wanting to grow up and teach people how to protect animals at a beautiful rescue with rolling, green hills. When she learned about the horrific suffering other beings endured for human food, entertainment, science etc, this awakening fueled her lifelong passion to protect them, align her daily choices with her values, and invite others to connect to the truth and advance a more compassionate world. Elana has a degree in creative writing and an extensive background in program development and management, teaching, humane education, and social work. As a vegan for over two decades, she is the co-founder of Rhode Island Vegan Awareness, a non-profit all volunteer run vegan advocacy organization, which she led for a decade. In 2013, Elana realized her childhood dream when she joined the staff of Catskill Animal Sanctuary. It is there that envisioned, developed and currently oversees New Leaf, an innovative and unique vegan mentor program that has quickly spread to 30 countries around the world.

Part I: Lana Dee Povitz, Stirrings, How Activist New Yorkers Ignited a Movement for Food Justice
In the last three decades of the twentieth century, government cutbacks, stagnating wages, AIDS, and gentrification pushed ever more people into poverty, and hunger reached levels unseen since the Depression. In response, New Yorkers set the stage for a nationwide food justice movement. Whether organizing school lunch campaigns, establishing food co-ops, or lobbying city officials, citizen-activists made food a political issue, uniting communities across lines of difference. The charismatic, usually female leaders of these efforts were often products of earlier movements: American communism, civil rights activism, feminism, even Eastern mysticism. Situating food justice within these rich lineages, Lana Dee Povitz demonstrates how grassroots activism continued to thrive, even as it was transformed by unrelenting erosion of the country’s already fragile social safety net. Using dozens of new oral histories and archives, Povitz reveals the colorful characters who worked behind the scenes to build and sustain the movement, and illuminates how people worked together to overturn hierarchies rooted in class and race, reorienting the history of food activism as a community-based response to austerity. The first book-length history of food activism in a major American city, Stirrings highlights the emotional, intimate, and interpersonal aspects of social movement culture. Lana Dee Povitz is visiting assistant professor of history at Middlebury College.

Glenn Saks and Liora Raphael, Happy Animals

Liora Raphael and Glenn Saks are lawyers and long-time friends. Over lunch at a favorite vegan restaurant, Liora relayed her frustration in finding an age-appropriate book for her daughter to assist in answering the question “Why don’t we eat animals?” and Glenn, never one to turn down a challenge, said, “Let’s write one!”
Liora Raphael lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children, and their adored standard poodle. While browsing in a bookstore in college she happened to pick up a book about animal testing in the cosmetics industry. After reading it cover to cover in the aisle, her outlook changed and she immediately became vegetarian, and eventually vegan. In addition to spending time with her family and friends, Liora loves hiking, photography, and reading mystery novels.
Glenn Saks is an attorney living in Los Angeles with his wife. He enjoys hiking, kayaking, and exploring Los Angeles by foot. At the same time he was analyzing legal precedent and contract clauses, Glenn also began analyzing what he was putting on his plate. He had long noticed the disconnect between children enjoying stories with cute animals as the hero, and how often those very same animals were being fed to them at meal time, which inspired him to collaborate on this book.

Speaking tours have taken her to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Switzerland, China, Maui, France, The Hague, and across mainland America.
