1. “Dairy is scary”- ERIN JANUS
Erin Janus is a Youtuber who educates on the animal agriculture industry in brief, easy to understand videos that aren’t overly graphic. Her video entitled “Dairy is Scary” was the video that initially pushed me towards becoming a vegan myself. Perhaps you’re a vegetarian wondering why vegans take it that extra step. I promise this video will answer that question. The bonus to this video is that it’s only 5 minutes long!
2. “YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT YOUR LIFE IN THE SAME WAY AGAIN”- EARTHLING ED
Activist and Educator, Earthling Ed is a wealth of information on veganism. Many of us envision the loud, bratty, aggressive archetype when we think of vegans, but Earthling Ed offers a refreshingly polar opposite approach. Informed, empathetic and gentle, he delivers this viral speech “You Will Never Look at Your Life in the Same Way Again”, which has changed many lives positively, including mine. His channel also features respectful debates on veganism with college students, climate change activists, meat and dairy farmers.
3. “thE MOST IMPORTANT SPEECH YOU WILL EVER HEAR”- Gary yourofsky
Gary Yourofsky is widely recognized for his years dedicated to animal activism and delivering speeches on veganism all over the world. “The Most Important Speech You Will Ever Hear” includes a helpful segment towards the end where he quickly runs through a long list of the types of processed & packaged foods available to vegans in most grocery stores (even more options now since this video was posted in 2015). His youtube channel also features several famous debates and other speeches he’s delivered over the years.
