Brooklyn, rich in culture, is the real gem of New York’s five boroughs from its unique culture to the food and arts scene with more than 700 arts and cultural institutions. Omowale Adewale is the founder and organizer of Black Vegfest, and he created this event as a hub for vegan food, health-focused workshops, and lectures that span intersectional topics related to African-American culture, veganism, social justice, and mental health. "I was boxing, kickboxing, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), all while I was vegan. Being vegan, the first thing is not 'eating animals.' I mean, that's a great feeling. Not having that negative energy is incredible. Also, in terms of getting your energy back, having a resurgence of energy and power. I have that and I have the protein that I need, and I feel incredible. My chronic bronchitis has cleared up. I feel great and I feel this is the best way to go. The only thing I can say is that I wish I would've gone vegan a long time ago. Hopefully everybody is vegan, and, if you're not vegan, try it for a week, try it for two weeks; you're going to feel a lot better."
Let’s travel to Tel Aviv, the second most populous city in Israel and the economic and technological heart of the nation to join what was billed as the largest vegan festival in the world. This coastal city is also known as the “Vegan Capital of the World.” According to Omri Paz, founder and CEO of Vegan Friendly, the organizer of this event, over 50,000 people participated together with 1,000 vegan activists and featured over 100 booths. “An event like this can make me very positive. And as you can see around 50,000 people are going to come here to try vegan food, how many of them are vegan, maybe 10,000? So, most of the people here are not even vegan, and they want to take part in this amazing revolution.”
