Vegan Awareness Week-Day 6: Leilani Münter Speaks

September 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join AVS in welcoming modern legend Leilani Münter to Asheville!

She will give her talk entitled “Never Underestimate a Vegan Hippie Chick with a Race Car.”

Leilani Münter is a biology graduate turned race car driver and environmental activist. She believes it is essential for humans to adapt and evolve the way we are living to a sustainable way that does not destroy the world around us. Leilani is an advocate for renewable energy, solar power, electric cars, plant-based diet, and animal rights. She sits on the board of three non-profits: Oceanic Preservation Society, Empowered by Light, and EarthxFilm. Leilani is also an ambassador for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project and a patron of Population Matters. Leilani was featured in the 2015 documentary film Racing Extinction. Leilani wants our future to be a cleaner and kinder world.

Leilani’s talk will kick off the VegFest Pre-Party.
Be sure to visit her tent at VegFest on Sunday – she will be there selling her t-shirts (made with solar power)!

FOOD WILL BE AVAILABLE for purchase from Vegan Roaming pop-up, starting at 6:00. So arrive early, get your food and a drink, and find a seat.

Beverages, both alcoholic and non, will be available for purchase from the bar.
