Mills, M.D., graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine, is an urgent care physician in the Washington D.C. area whose preventative health care focus is on the unique challenges of minority populations. As a practicing Seventh-Day Adventist, Dr. Mills promotes the teaching that God’s original diet for humans was exclusively plant-based (Genesis 1:29). He is a featured expert in the documentaries What the Health? and A Prayer for Compassion where he shares his wisdom on health and faith as it relates to the way we eat. Mills is also known for publishing several research journal articles dealing with racial bias in federal nutrition policy and frequently donates his time to practice at free medical clinics. Victoria Moran first learned about ethical vegetarianism as a young child through her nanny, whose minister was Unity co-founder Charles Fillmore. Best-selling author of 13 books, including Creating a Charmed Life (published in 30 languages), The Love-Powered Diet, The Good Karma Diet, and the iconic Main Street Vegan, she is the founder and director of Main Street Vegan Academy, a training and certification program for vegan lifestyle coaches. Moran also hosts the weekly Unity radio show, Main Street Vegan, and is the lead producer of Thomas Wade Jackson’s acclaimed documentary, A Prayer for Compassion, which encourages our spiritual connection to all beings.

Towards Freedom is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization Pets are not allowed except for service animals. We are so sorry to say that due to strict Health Department regulations and liability issues we are unable to accommodate your dogs (even on-leash) at the event this year. We are all animal- lovers and this is really disappointing for us. If it was possible for us to have them, we would! However, you can still get your “dog-fix” and all the dog-licks you can handle by visiting the many adoptable dogs from rescue organizations that will be available at the festival. Service animals are allowed.
