“I Used to be a Vegetarian…”: An Interview with Rae Sikora

We are joined by educator and activist Rae Sikora to discuss why some people decide to stop being veg*n. What obstacles do people face? Why do some people stay committed, while others become discouraged? How can other veggies respond in a helpful and supportive way?

Rae is the co-founder of the Center for Compassionate Living and the International Institute for Humane Education. She is also the founder of Simply Enough, an organization that promotes peace, critical thinking, and creativity. “The time has come to recognize that we are enough and we have enough regardless of the messages that advertising and popular culture have infused into our lifestyles” (www.simplyenough.com).
