Dawn L. Moncrief


Founder / Executive Director / Board Director of A Well-Fed World

Appearing on Sunday at the Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference



Dawn Moncrief is the Founding Director of A Well-Fed World (AWFW), a hunger relief and animal protection nonprofit based in Washington, DC. AWFW's dual mission uniquely assists both people and animals in dire need. Their advocacy and research create structural change by advancing the food security benefits of plant-based food and farming. Their financial and activity-based programs empower innovative food justice groups to achieve immediate impact at the grassroots level.

Through their Global Grants program, AWFW distributes more than 200 grants annually, with 50+ countries represented. Additional contributions are provided through their disaster relief fund, and their Plants-4-Hunger campaign provides year-round opportunities to alleviate child hunger in Ethiopia, India, Guatemala, and the United States.A Well-Fed World Logo

In addition to speaking in the U.S., U.K., Europe, and Africa, Dawn's written work includes contributions in Circles of Compassion: Essays Connecting Issues of Justice and chapters in two forthcoming anthologies. Her work highlights the ways in which the consumption of animal-sourced foods exacerbates global hunger, especially for women and children. She also draws attention to the dangerous consequences of animal agriculture on climate change and resource depletion.

Dawn is a founding Board Director for Beyond Carnism and serves as Board Advisor and/or Organizational Partner for the International Fund for Africa, Food For Life Global, Brighter Green, Help Animals India, Grow Where You Are, and MaituFoods. She holds two master's degrees from George Washington University: one in international relations, the other in women's studies-both with a focus on economic development. She was an early participant in the Woodhull Institute's Ethical Leadership Program and was awarded GWU's Graduate Prize for Feminist Scholarship for her research connecting women, hunger, and meat.
