Dr. Joanne Kong

Dr. Joanne Kong has been praised throughout the country as one of the most compelling advocates for plant-based nutrition today, centered ethically in raising awareness that greater compassion for animals and our planet is vitally necessary for transformative growth and positive world change.

Dr. Kong is available to speak on these topics:

  • Food for Thought: How a Greener Diet Can Transform You and the Planet
  • If You’ve Ever Loved An Animal, Go Vegan
  • What Is Veganism About?

A TED talk is available on youtube - The Power of Plant-Based Eating

Motivated to become vegetarian over 30 years ago upon learning of the atrocities of factory farming, her lectures promoting veganism have been described as “artfully crafted,” “a positive message about the way our daily choices can make the world a better place for others and for ourselves,” “making a difference and encouraging positive change to happen,” and “enlightening and provocative.”

Some of Joanne’s presentations this year and next include appearances at the University of Washington, Rollins College, the Chrysalis Institute, Richmond Vegetarian Festival, Vegetarian Society of Richmond, the Waring School, New York University, Columbia University, Virginia Commonwealth University, VegFest Colorado, Ohio State University, Brigham Young University, Green Festival Expos in Washington, D. C. and Los Angeles, National Animal Rights Day in Washington, D. C., Milwaukee Veg Expo, Tufts University, MIT, and Yale University. A speaker with the Humane Party, her highly-praised TED talk on veganism is included in Unbound Project, “a multimedia and book project that celebrates the inspiring women who have been at the forefront of animal advocacy around the globe,” and she was interviewed on the radio program Vegan Nation for Earth Day 2017.

In addition to her animal and environmental advocacy work, she is a critically-acclaimed and award-winning classical pianist, and empowers individuals from all walks of life through her lectures and workshops on performance anxiety. She is a professor at the University of Richmond where she received the 2017 Sustainability Leadership Award, and her new book is titled If You’ve Ever Loved an Animal, Go Vegan.

In early 2018 she will travel throughout India on an extensive speaking tour to promote the benefits of veganism.
