The plant-based food industry is exploding in response to the demand for a more sustainable, equitable food system that is not dominated by a handful of megacorporations. The Rancher Advocacy Program (RAP) Summit was created to bring together thought-leaders from business, science, government and medicine to share scalable and scientifically-backed solutions. This 4th annual summit will feature a discussion surrounding how the next generation of farmers can convert their land away from animal-based business models. The day will be hosted by Renee King-Sonnen, founder of Rowdy Girl Sanctuary and RAP, and co-hosted by Jane Velez-Mitchell, founder of UnchainedTV, a digital news network to promote animal rights.
