Filmmaker Makes the Case for Returning to Plant-Based Roots!

#LunchBreakLIVE features the extraordinary writer, producer, filmmaker, Jasmine C. Leyva, co-producer (with her fiancee, Kenny Leyva) of the film, The Invisible Vegan. This documentary addresses how plant-based eating is directly linked to African roots and how the current American diet is part of a chain of oppression stemming from slavery and modern agribusiness. This film will be featured at the Animal Rights 2018 National Conference #ar2018 on Sat June 30 from 1 – 3 pm followed by a panel discussion with Jasmine, A Vegan Child's Journey- Genesis Butler, Tracye McQuirter, and Milton Rene Mills, MD.
