#10 Rebecca Moore (Musician, Avant-Guard Performer, Activist) “From Art to Veganism”

On today’s show Shana and Theresa talk with Rebecca Moore, musician, actor, performance artist, educator, activist and co-founder of Hudson Valley Veg Fest. She talks to us about what it was like growing up in NYC, collaborating with pioneers of the 80’s and 90’s NYC art scene, making and playing music, and fighting for the rights of artists and tenants during the height of Manhattan’s gentrification. Rebecca befriended a chicken at summer camp when she was 10 years old which would forever have a profound impact on who she is and what she does. Now, as a full-time animal rights activist she has The Institute for Animal Happiness , Rebecca talks about the ways she educates others on the agriculture industry, and how she is building a Vegan movement in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Her work is all about creating a culture of compassion which includes compassion for self and others. Words of wisdom from Rebecca, activists, be sure to take care of yourselves, don’t fall prey to guilt trips, and surround yourselves with those who support you!

Next week we sit down with Rebecca Martin, musician, environmental and political activist, and community builder. Mark your calendars, you won’t want to miss this!
