Although the term “vegan” is gaining cultural currency, who vegans are and what motivates them are still often subjects of widespread misconception and stereotyping. On the flip side, some vegans can stumble when explaining their ethical positions and dietary choices to a skeptical, or perhaps even receptive, audience. While graphic images and animal-related literature remain common outreach tools, filmmaker and popular blogger Eric Prescott takes a fresh and personal approach in his efforts to demystify veganism. Enter “I’m Vegan,” a “series of short documentary profiles that aim for long-term impact as an online series normalizing veganism … intended to serve as a form of ongoing advocacy.” Tune in to learn more about the project and how you can get involved.
