My Vegan Agenda

Share this:

I’m always struck by the accusation that vegans have an agenda. It’s remarkable to me that our minds have become so jaded by advertising and marketing that we trust McDonald’s or the National Cattleman’s Beef Association or the Pork Producers – those who have THE MOST TO GAIN, the most money to make off of the backs of animals and off of our ignorance. But when a vegan talks about the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet – we’re accused of “having an agenda.”

It’s true. I confess. I have an agenda. It’s called compassion.

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
