One of the most independent things one can do to empower themselves is to learn. Learning is essential for growing and for having a successful transition to this lifestyle. 

On this page, you’ll find useful links to movies, documentaries, websites, influencers, videos, blogs, and books so you can build your education database. 

These resources have helped inspire me along my vegan journey and made my transition to a raw pure living lifestyle much easier and prepared. Learning all there is to know about this lifestyle is one key step to having a successful transition. I feel one of the biggest reasons why people fail on this lifestyle is because they haven’t educated themselves enough. Educate yourself on all the basics there is to know about living a plant-based lifestyle. With the useful links provided to you below, I made it easy for you to inform yourself like I did.

The first documentary that opened my eyes and helped me see the cruelty and abuse the animals go through was Forks Over Knives. After watching it, I had too much compassion in my heart to continue to eat dead animals. 

Some of the documentaries are available and free to watch on Netflix, while most of the videos are free to watch on YouTube. Please share with your family and friends who would need these sources.
