Ellen Ericksen – abusers really wish she would just be quiet!

Those who actively abuse animals or benefit from their enslavement want to ignore us. And, clearly, Ellen Ericksen makes that impossible.

Fri, Sept. 8 – Sun, Sept 10: Free Visions of Change Workshop in Florida

My Office in Wildwood, Florida (about an hour north of Orlando) I went vegan and became an activist because I was horrified — in absolute disbelief — at the injustices animals are made to endure; it was because I wanted to create real change.

Does being vegan make you an animal activist? Nope!

A friend from Israel showed me how to make homemade hummus and authentic Middle Eastern “vegetable balls.” I can make pizza or pumpkin pie. Sometimes I like my version of Macho Nachos with guacamole, salsa,…
