FROTHY! CREAMY! SMOOTH! #DONEWITHDAIRY advocates VeganEvan and his mom Shannon Blair mix up some plant-based milk delights!  This is a fun episode with little Vegan Evan showing us how easy and tasty it is to be vegan!

 

 

Shannon’s journey toward animal liberation really got going on Thanksgiving Day, 1996, when she was just 9 years old. After she saw footage showing what happens to animals in order for them to end up on our plates, she never ate another animal again and immediately became an activist, stickering packages and holding demos outside of supermarkets. 

After about 2 decades of eating a vegetarian diet, Shannon was made aware of the atrocities occurring in the dairy industry — she had never heard this information before.  She also watched Cowspiracy on Netflix and then made the decision to transition to a Vegan Lifestyle overnight.  Shortly after, she found out how horrendous the egg industry is, another one she had been supporting during all that time as a vegetarian. 

Shannon now understood why those “crazy vegans” weren’t eating cheese or eggs — they weren’t so crazy after all.  She got right back into activism — this time with more knowledge, more reasons, and an incredible amount of inspiration from her son, VeganEvan (who decided to go vegan the same day, even though she tried talking him out of it)!  Shannon is fighting for the animals and for Evan’s future.  She quit her job in 2017 to advocate, educate, and activate full-time.  Shannon and Evan travel all over doing outreach & actions for the animals.  They are in the process of starting up a new non-profit organization, the Animal Liberation Action Squad. Shannon is the Director of Parenting & Activism for APlantBasedDiet.org and also a Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach & Educator.

VeganEvan is a passionate and talented young animal advocate committed to creating a healthy, compassionate, and regenerative world. He is the Youth Ambassador for APlantBasedDiet.org and a spokesperson for the Solutionary Species movement. Evan is also an ambassador for the global organization, Million Dollar Vegan. He is the World’s Youngest Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach & Educator. VeganEvan has spoken in front of large audiences at several major events throughout the country including the What the Health-Cowspiracy Conference, Central Florida Earth Day, the Animal Liberation Conference, Tampa Bay VegFest, the National Animal Rights Conference, Asheville Vegan  Fest, VegFest Oahu and so many more!!  He has been awarded the Russell Simmons Creative Animal Hero Kids Award, and in 2016, he earned PETA’s Cutest Vegan Kid award.  In 2017, he was awarded the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion from the Supreme Master Ching Hai Association. VeganEvan is a voice for the animals everywhere he goes! He enjoys leafleting, protesting, doing marches, Open Rescue, Cooking Demos, disruptions, and making videos and rap songs! Evan also participates in Anonymous for the Voiceless Cubes of Truth and Vigils with the Save Movement wherever he travels. Most of all, he loves visiting all of his rescued friends at the sanctuaries where they are happy, safe, and free from harm.
