Kawani AJ Brown is a vegan mother, author and founder of the Natural and Holistic Baby Expo and Long Beach Vegan Food and Music Festival. She lives in California with her husband (vegan for 5yrs) and two children who have been vegan since birth.
Kawani is committed to raising awareness about natural living and veganism through her writing and holding community events. Her recently published children's book, "Where Does Dinner Come From?" is the first in a series of books that highlight living a plant based lifestyle and encourages vegan and non-vegan families alike. The second title, “My Mama’s Milk”, explores how each mammal makes milk specifically for their babies and will be released in Spring 2016.
The Long Beach Vegan Food and Music Festival debuts June 4th 2016 in Long Beach, Ca. The fest is an all ages, all vegan, outdoor event with live music throughout the day. The intent is to celebrate veganism and bring awareness to those seeking more information.
"I was vegetarian for 17 years and transitioned to vegan when my daughter was born. When breastfeeding my daughter, I realized consuming dairy was denying another living being’s right to nurse their baby. I looked further into the dairy industry and the affects it has on human health and knew that veganism was the most logical and ethical choice. Being vegan is love. Love for yourself, love for others, love for the Earth and love for life!
