Editorial Review from Kathy Divine: Vegans are Cool! 

"Circles of Compassion is rich in innovative thought, connection and heart. The perfectly orchestrated collaboration of inspired minds makes this collection of writings essential reading for anyone wanting to develop or deepen their compassion for all beings.

...I loved the inclusive tone of the book and the hope I felt while reading it. I will share this book far and wide as I regard it as a brilliant educational tool that we are very fortunate to have access to.

As more and more people are now re-awakening their innate compassion, Circles of Compassion has arrived at the perfect moment in time...."

Our Chapter

"Hunger, Meat, and the Banality of Evil" 

Book - Dawn Quote Our essay, by AWFW's Founding Director Dawn Moncrief, provides a glimpse into some of the tangible ways in which meat is a form of overconsumption and waste that redistributes food away from the world's poor.

It connects hunger and meat as systems of oppression that normalize atrocities against people and animals—thus desensitizing individuals and society, and bolstering other forms of systemic violence and injustice.

On a more personal level, it provides a feel for the actual suffering of both people and animals. It highlights the human actions and intention that distinguish suffering from injustice... and harm from violence.

Read an excerpt from our essay on
Global Hunger.
