Rachel Black attended Temple University where she received BFA in Painting. She then stayed in Philadelphia for the next 5 years where she worked for two animal welfare non-profits. During these years Rachel fought for veg food options, enacting the Meatless Monday program in four school districts, organized dozens of community events around compassionate living, and helped grow a thriving network of volunteer activists around the country, mentoring them to advocate for a more environmentally friendly and compassionate way of living through plant-based eating. She also gave hundreds of presentations on the devastating effect of modern animal agriculture in high schools and colleges. Rachel is now a teaching assistant at a Charter School in a suburb of Philadelphia and a presenter for Factory Farming Awareness Coalition. Rachel believes our society can change for the better, and hopes to inspire our future generation to make conscious decisions that positively affect them and the society they live in.
