Vegan educator does empathy workshops in Florida schools

Like us on Facebook:

Having worked with children for the better part of my young life, I find that any news about vegan youth outreach is always a delight to read. This time, a South Florida educator is getting some well deserved praise from the vegan community for developing her own humane, vegan education program. By using the experiences of animals, Magaly Madrid has been teaching workshops on empathy, a crucial skill for children to learn as they grow into adults. Having empathy for animal populations goes hand in hand with anti bullying and examining ways to help marginalized populations.

In addition to collecting dog and cat food as a companion animal food bank, Madrid goes into public schools to teach her workshops that promote vegan eating and compassionate living. Madrid addressed concerns that some parents might have when she spoke with blog Latest Vegan News. “I’m not forcing them to make any type of changes in their lives. I’m just providing those tools and opening their hearts and they can make the choices themselves,” she told them. Empowerment is good stuff, and it’s lovely to see more of it put in the hands of youth.

Madrid also shared a dream of wanting to help bring vegan options to food banks and soup kitchens.
Going vegan as a youth can seem daunting, and it’s wonderful to see another leader in the vegan education movement emerging.
