Senator Cory Booker’s charisma and convictions have made him a favorite among voters and a hopeful sign for a beacon of change across many important issues facing our nation, including equality, health, and safety. As a proud self-proclaimed vegan, Booker has been an inspiration on how to live a cruelty-free lifestyle, and this weekend, he visited the New Jersey VegFest and spoke about the plant-based movement that is spreading in the United States.

During his two-hour visit to the festival, Booker visited nearly every vendor and spoke with them about their businesses and projects.

In a speech at the event, he said, “Vegan consciousness is growing in our country,” and he addressed those who are “conscious of the environment … against cruelty to animals, conscious of [their] health,” saying, “I am so proud that we are all gathering here today to celebrate the consciousness of ideals that all of us hold dear.”

Senator Booker also noted that he is “the only vegan in United States Senate history!” We are so glad to see a prominent politician like Booker stand up for animals and the environment by using his platform to promote the concept of eating plant-based. With leaders like him, the path to a plant-based future seems more possible than ever before. To learn how you can join in on this movement and help heal the world with your food choices, check out the Eat for the Planet book!
