    As a full-time food activist, Marisa has organized roughly 70 grassroots workshops and screenings of award-winning documentaries about healthy, humane, eco-friendly eating all across North America. She decided to tell a story that hadn’t been told on film before and completed Vegucated with the help of colleagues at the FilmShop and the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective. She borrowed heavily from her experience as a sketch comedian who has performed at the Chicago Improv Festival, Caroline’s on Broadway, and the March for Women’s Lives, where she shared a stage with Gloria Steinem. She has starred in award-winning short films and edited the documentary short I [broken heart] NYC, which screened at the Bushwick Film Festival and the Last Supper Film Festival. Her letters and articles have been published in USA Today Magazine, The New York Times, and The Chicago Tribune, and her PSAs on environmental and animal protection issues have been viewed by thousands. She has enjoyed vegucating the 1,300+ members of her free online coaching program Vegan at Heart, which was featured on Oprah.com. She’s a founding member of the Sustainable Leadership Council of NYC and the NYC Foodprint Alliance and is the honored recipient of Farm Sanctuary’s Farm Animal Friend Award.

      Our Hen House (www.ourhenhouse.org) presents The Truth Will Set Them Free: An Evening with James McWilliams Sponsored by Dun-Well Doughnuts (www.dunwelldoughnuts.com) Join Our Hen House for a very special evening with environmentalist and historian James E. McWilliams, author of Just Food: Where Locavores Get it Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly. With the world's food system teetering on the brink of disaster, and the health benefits of a plant-based diet reaching mainstream attention, a shift toward a less animal-centric diet is imminent. And yet, will the most compelling reason of all for changing our diets be left out of that conversation? What about the animals? The time is ripe for a worldwide shift in the relationship between humans and animals, but that can only happen if we can transcend the popular notion that animal rights advocacy is based in thoughtless sentimentality rather than rigorous science. Join us for a riveting discussion of how science-based arguments, rooted in the burgeoning body of knowledge regarding the extraordinary nature of our fellow earthlings, can help us continue the revolution in our relationship with animals that began with Darwin. About James McWilliams: James McWilliams is an associate professor of history at Texas State University. He was a fellow at Yale University's Agrarian Studies Program, and is the author of several books, including Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly (Little, Brown & Company, 2009). A regular contributor to The Atlantic, he has written for the New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times. He lives in Austin, Texas. About Our Hen House: Our Hen House is a multimedia hive of opportunities to change the world for animals. With our primary goal being to effectively mainstream the movement to end the exploitation of animals, we showcase opportunities for individuals who care to start changing the world.

        Sustainable America began in 2006 with the intention to document the knowledge, tools, and ideas that will create a more sustainable "American" way of life. After 5 years, a few projects in between, and some courage to finally put it out there... here it is. Any feedback is absolutely welcomed. Being my first feature-length documentary and a one-man show for the most-part, it begs of it. Thank you.
