In the latest episode of our Activists in Action interview series, LFT founder Nina Jackel talks with Heather Mitts, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, former member of the U.S. Women’s National Team, and vegan animal advocate.

Heather decided to switch to a plant-based diet after watching What the Health, a documentary that investigates the collusion between the meat and dairy industries and government health organizations. She is currently involved with Switch4Good, an anti-dairy non-profit organization, and looks forward to continuing to promote animal activism.
