He’s played the roles of countless villains and side characters, and he’s a face many will remember, although few might be able to name him. Known for starring in over 150 films between 2013 and 2015, Eric Roberts is an actor with a truly admirable work ethic – and his talents are shared among his sisters Julia and Lisa, as well as his daughter, Emma – all of them successful actresses.
Yet behind the glitz of Hollywood, Eric is a staunch animal rights supporter and long-time vegan. As a fellow lover of animals, we’re challenging Mr. Roberts to take on the #VeganCancer challenge, and spread the word on the aims of our movement. As an online platform, we aim to bring vegans together to plan, fund and realize community projects all over the world.
From non-cruelty farms and sanctuary farms to housing projects for vegans off the grid, the #VeganCancer movement is a community through which vegans all over the world can donate and contribute ideas and funds for a better vegan world. Every individual’s choice to go vegan helps, yet it’s what we do united that matters – and that’s what we would like to emphasize on. A fragmented vegan community will do the world no good – which is where the community’s projects come in. Anything is valid, so long as it follows these tenets:
Sustainability. Whether it’s a farm or a housing complex, the entire project has to be built with ecological sustainability and renewability in mind. That includes using recycled materials, more energy-efficient building techniques, 100% renewable energy and rainwater filtration systems. The aim is to create carbon-zero structures.
Cruelty-free treatment. No animal production, animal products, or animal slavery is allowed. As such, efforts have to be made to provide places for animals to roam freely, and all earthlings – animals and humans alike – aren’t to be discriminated against on the basis of ability, sex, age, or religion.
Freedom of information. Education and information should be a universal right, with higher education awarded to those who deserve it based on merit, not funds. Anyone can learn any trade or skill, and is free to teach within their areas of expertise. Mentorship, rather than systemized and generalized education.
