January 2022

Afro-Vegan Society is back for the 2nd year, hosting Veguary - a vegan program highlighting the contributions, richness, and diversity of Black culture.


Veguary is a FREE month-long celebration encouraging people to try vegan living during the month of February. This campaign is purposefully situated in the month of February - Black History Month in the United States - to highlight the contributions of Black trailblazers, and the many benefits of vegan living in our communities.

We're providing resources, support, and community to everyone who participates in Veguary. Each day will be filled with new ways to engage, including: vegan recipes, online cooking demos, virtual workshops & interviews, daily informative emails, virtual happy hours, exclusive prizes, and interactive check-ins through our Veguary Facebook group

Plant-based traditions have been prominent in cultures throughout the African Diaspora for centuries. In the US, civil rights leaders made some of the earliest and most concise assessments of the connections between our society's systemic racial violence, and the cruelty of the animal agriculture industry.

Today, African American's are the fastest growing population of new vegans. Afro-Vegan Society's Veguary program is designed to create a pathway to vegan living for people in our community who are interested in making a lifestyle change, but need support from a community that understands and centers the Black experience.
