The Honorable Emma Hurst is a member of the Australian state of New South Wales’ Legislative Council where she uses this platform to tirelessly campaign for animal protection reform and animal rights. Ms. Hurst is also a long time vegan, plant-based bodybuilder and a registered psychologist. “I didn’t want to kill animals. I had no idea that even eating organic or free-range eggs, meant that all day-old male chicks in the egg industry would be macerated. And that in the dairy industry, that calves will be torn away from their mothers and taken to slaughterhouses. When I read all this information, it was just like the lights switched on, and I just went vegan overnight. I worked for Animal Liberation for over a decade. I’ve also worked for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). And I decided that it was really people that needed to change, not animals.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present The Honorable Emma Hurst the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion, with all love, a big hug and best wishes, in Heaven’s grace. May you and all your supporters forever be in God’s favor.”

Once elected to Parliament, the Honorable Emma Hurst presented a powerful inaugural speech that has been applauded by people around the world. “My promise to the animals is this: You have all of me. The lioness in the circus, I see you. The pig in the sow stall, I see you. The mouse in the medical experimentation facility, I see you. The fish crushed at the bottom of a trawler net, I see you. I know you’re suffering, and I will never be silent. I will push forward, no matter what life throws my way, because the cruelties inflicted on you must end, and I will do all I can to see that happen.” Ms. Hurst’s inaugural speech has touched many people’s hearts and has inspired audiences worldwide to be courageous and motivated to march on the path of compassion and veganism. We, as a society, are ultimately responsible for the ways in which we treat all cohabitants. To that end, Emma is a proponent of transparency within the animal industries. And the more Ms. Hurst speaks candidly about the plight of animals everywhere, the more people are sitting up and taking notice, even those who seem unlikely to do so.
