192: Anonymous for the Voiceless


Asal Alamdari is the Co-Founder and Director of Anonymous for the Voiceless; an international group of people sharing standard practice factory farm footage while wearing masks and standing in square-like formations, better known as Cubes of Truth.

As a child, Asal witnessed the ceremonial practice of lamb slaughter on the streets of Iran, which provoked the idea that she would never again consume lamb.

Years later, Asal came across a video of a fur farm, which prompted her to do something about animal cruelty. With her partner Paul, Asal co-founded Anonymous for the Voiceless, and today, the organization has over 1000 chapters and has hosted over 15,000 events worldwide!

Dolly Vyas-Ahuja is an Ahimsa animal activist and a voice for the voiceless. Her mission is to spread awareness and education about the cruelty of the Dairy Industry. She comes from a Gandhian family and is the granddaughter of a Freedom Fighter for social justice in India. One of her main objectives is to have Indian temples pledge to be cruelty-free and ban the use of dairy products.

In this episode, Dolly tells her personal story as well as her great efforts to educate India, and the rest of the world on the idea that dairy is not Ahimsa (an act of non-violence).

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

Renee King-Sonnen went from rancher's wife to vegan highly because of a special calf she calls Rowdy Girl. Renee's husband Tommy wanted her to care for the calf, hoping that she would become a better Rancher's Wife.

Renee quickly realized the cows were sentient beings as she watched the mothers and babies cry for each other when they were separated. She bought Rowdy Girl for $300, which gave her the official title as a "Rancher", having no idea that this was to be the beginning of her journey towards veganism.

Today, Renee and Tommy's ranch that was once called "Sonnen Ranch" is a sanctuary named after her calf, Rowdy Girl. Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is recognized as a 501C-3 (Non-Profit) and houses 107 animals, 62 of which are cows!
