Featured Tranquilista: Marisa Miller Wolfson. As a full-time food activist, Marisa has organized roughly 70 grassroots workshops and screenings of award-winning documentaries about healthy, humane, eco-friendly eating all across North America. She decided to tell a story that hadn’t been told on film before and completed Vegucated with the help of colleagues at the FilmShop and the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective. She borrowed heavily from her experience as a sketch comedian who has  performed at the Chicago Improv Festival, Caroline’s on Broadway, and the March for Women’s Lives, where she shared a stage with Gloria Steinem. She has starred in award-winning short films and edited the documentary short I [broken heart] NYC, which screened at the Bushwick Film Festival and the Last Supper Film Festival. Her letters and articles have been published in USA Today Magazine, The New York Times, and The Chicago Tribune, and her PSAs on environmental and animal protection issues have been viewed by thousands. She has enjoyed vegucating the 1,600+ members of her free online coaching program Vegan at Heart, which was featured on She’s a founding member of the Sustainable Leadership Council of NYC and the NYC Foodprint Alliance and is the honored recipient of Farm Sanctuary’s Farm Animal Friend Award.
