Campaign lead for Plant-Based Councils / vegan campaigner

Becoming vegan two years ago absolutely changed my life. I got involved in vegan activism pretty much straight away and it has changed my entire career trajectory. I first set up a Bristol local group for Animal Rising (previously Animal Rebellion) and later left my job in teaching to become a full time member of the national team, working as South West regional coordinator. Late last year I started to lead the Plant-Based Councils campaign nationally and have been coordinating a Plant-Based Councils campaign here in Bristol for the last 5 months. I believe institutional change has a huge part to play in moving us towards a more plant-based future.
