Ellen is passionate about animal rights (AR). Her entire family is vegan since 2008 and, together, they run the vegan business REBLUSA.COM. (REBL is Rebecca, Ellen, Bobby and Leah btw.)
Ellen is involved in many vegan causes, including farm animal sanctuaries, veg fests, and vegan events.
(Because food choices matter, she also runs an organic CSA and is very involved in her Farmers Market.)
Below are some links to the AR places she has volunteered and/or worked, always out of love.

Woodstock Farm Sanctuary
This is the place that changed everything. In 2009, Bobby and Ellen, as ethical vegetarians, saw a postcard to visit this sanctuary. Upon a tour with Jenny Brown, co-founder, seeing the happy chickens Ellen cried and said no more. A long term relationship was formed.
Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary
So happy for another local sanctuary to expand in size and scope. Gabby and Peter called when they needed a new moving brochure in a rush, and I was thrilled to help. Their farm can now be all that they hoped for. And their hot sauce is awesome!
Catskill Animal Sanctuary
Our friend Ray works at CAS. He is a driven animal rights speaker. He asked Ellen to do a few event postcards and flyers and social media graphics. She also worked with CAS to design the 8-foot banner first used at the first Animal Rights March in NYC. (A great event btw!)
Full Circle Farm Sanctuary
Full Circle saw the interpretive signs we did at Woodstock and decided to do their own version. They are currently being produced, with 14 signs representing all of their rescues. Advocacy and information is key in changing hearts and minds.
Hudson Valley VEGFEST
Rebecca and Sande put their heart, soul and time into starting the first Hudson Valley (NY) Veg Fest. Ellen helped with whatever they needed. The show was a success, with great vendors, speakers and attendees, many who were exposed to veganism for the first time. Brava, ladies!
Other places/groups include: Jewish Veg, NY Farm Animal Save, and an AR art show Through Compassionate Eyes.
