Ellen Ericksen with the words Dont eat animals written on her head

Ellen Ericksen, Humane educator/activist – Changing the World with education

Date grant awarded: March 2019

We are in a crisis state right now. We have very little time to possibly reverse all the damage that we have done to our planet. To best address this we educate, from the very young to the very old.

My purpose is to teach, encourage, and help people make choices in their lives that will impact the future of our children and therefore, the future of our planet. To best meet these goals, I facilitate education stations and workshops at fairs with the local youth of 4-H and FFA groups. My initial grant titled Unsung Vegan Hero, has opened many doors for me in regards to credibility. With the additional funding, I will broaden my work and on a more frequent basis. This will allow me with materials and handouts, permits, and other items needed.
