Leonardo da Vinci: "My body will not be a tomb for other creatures."

At the World Vegan Summit & Expo, to be held at the Marina del Rey Marriott on March 20-22, 2015, speakers, thinkers, movers and shakers will meet to focus advocacy and activism on creating a compassionate, healthy, environmentally-sustainable vegan world, with the abolition of all use of other animals for food, clothing, entertainment, experimentation, and (impossibly unattainable) “humane animal products.”

Trend-setting LA Goes Vegan for a new start as Spring begins, with the World Vegan Summit & Expo offering a multitude of topics for coverage and outstanding participants available for interviews who will answer the question "What does it mean to Go Vegan?"

Dozens of speakers, presentations, and workshops, are accompanied by social events, music, film, food, and fun. Among the participants will be luminous figures in the world vegan movement, including:

Philosophers, professors, and ethicists addressing moral issues, featuring Professor Gary Francione of Rutgers University, the first academic to teach animal rights theory at an American law school;

Yeb Sano, chief UN climate negotiator for the typhoon-ravaged Philippines;

"Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan and Will Tuttle, author of the best-selling "World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health & Social Harmony";

Olympic skier Seba Johnson, the first champion vegan bodybuilder Kenneth G. Williams, sexagenerian couple Alan Murray and breast-cancer survivor Janette Murray-Wakelin;

Michael Klaper, M.D., world-renowned health and nutrition expert, consultant to NASA, "Sounds of Healing" radio show host;

Cesar Chavez birthday celebration honoring the life of the great vegan, peace, and social justice activist;

Greetings via video from 92-year-old Jain spiritual leader Gurudev Chitrabhanu plus a presentation from healer Vaidya Priyanka, from a 700 year lineage of ayurvedic women healers;

As attendees strategize to save the world, the animals, and the children, they will be rewarded with world-class entertainment from some very talented vegans. Popular on national TV, comedian Myq Kaplan will provide his unique stand-up comedy, "American Idol" favorite Amy Jean Davis will sing, and solo sensation -- and Madonna's back-up singer for 20 years -- Donna De Lory will perform with her band. The Saturday night dinner show, "Soul Food-For-Thought," celebrates veganism with an Ethiopian feast and exciting music from vegan LA reggae sensation Blaze Mob and rapper Vegan Boss, plus presentations from food experts.

Someone has to save the planet, billions of innocent animals, and humanity from hunger, disease, war, violence, and climate change, and it won’t be the people telling you to eat “humane," free-range, cage-free, organic, grass-fed meat, dairy, fish, and eggs. It will be the people attending the Los Angeles area World Vegan Summit & Expo, March 20-22, 2015.
