It may not seem as though the terms “Ohio congressman” and “vegan” go together, but Dennis Kucinich is proving otherwise. Kucinich, representative for Ohio’s 10th congressional district, is in full support of honoring Vegan Earth Day on June 21. As told to Bob Linden of the radio program Go Vegan with Bob Linden, Kucinich’s Press Secretary Nathan White revealed that the congressman is currently creating a proclamation in support of Vegan Earth Day. Kucinich, a vegan himself, will deliver his statement from the floor of the United States Congress, which will be televised by C-SPAN. Speaking to the need for increased global awareness of the environmental, health, and economic benefits of a vegan lifestyle, the congressman is sure to capture audiences, both congressionally and globally.
