Puerto Rican activist Michelle Carrera founded Chilis on Wheels in 2014 when she couldn’t find a soup kitchen in NYC that served vegan meals. The non-profit has grown from her small kitchen to over ten chapters of volunteers across the US, including Puerto Rico and Hawaii, sharing warm meals, clothing, toiletries and workshops with people in need. Michelle talks about making veganism accessible & liberating for everyone, unschooling her son, sharing their home with two chickens, doing food relief work after Hurricane Maria, and founding Casa Vegana de la Comunidad, a vegan community center and microsanctuary in San Juan.
