James Aspey is an Australian animal rights activist and lecturer best known for maintaining a year of silence to “raise awareness for animals and promote peace over violence.” After overcoming a past of drugs, cancer, and bulimia through meditation and karmic reflection, he made the switch to veganism by then considering the compassion on his plate. Today, his number one goal in life is to educate, encourage, and inspire others.
Laura Callan is a writer, speaker, and Founder/Editor of Bright Zine. The vegan lifestyle magazine expands the conversation of living an ethical lifestyle to topics of culture and community. From the recycled paper their issues are printed on to the biodegradable apparel packaging they use, Bright Zine “aims to create conversations around vegan and ethical lifestyle topics, spreading awareness and compassion.”
