Dr. Anteneh Roba Discusses IFA on Marlene and Friends


On July 3rd, IFA's co-founder and president Dr. Anteneh Roba appeared on Marlene and Friends, a program run by health counselor and author Marlene Watson-Tara. Watson-Tara interviewed Roba as part of a project to speak with 30 individuals involved in the animal-rights movement and develop a television series based on their interviews. In their conversation together, Watson-Tara invited Roba to speak about his roots as a vegan and his motivation to found IFA. Roba described the multifaceted approach he conceived from the beginning for IFA, which focuses on the interconnected well-being of both human and non-human animals. Watson-Tara provides a short summation of this approach in the article she posted about us on her website, and you can listen to the full interview on her website.
