Fall 2022 Cohort

About the Program

In 2022, Afro-Vegan Society began planning the first ever Black Vegan Activist Training program. We had over 50 applicants from across the United States, Brazil, Canada and West Africa. This October, Afro-Vegan Society welcomed a cohort of 12 enthusiastic participants from communities across North America from a wide variety of disciplines and walks of life. We administered our 5 week training program featuring live lessons, weekly assignments, a robust resource library, and activist initiative pitches from our participants.
