Afro-Vegan Society to Celebrate Black History Month with

 Celebration of Black Plant-Based Traditions, Vegan Living Pledge

Chefs, physicians, athletes and filmmakers join forces to promote the health benefit of the plant-based diet 

BALTIMORE, MD - The Afro-Vegan Society (AVS) will mark Black History Month with Veguary, a series of free programs highlighting the contributions of Black trailblazers, and the many benefits of vegan living in Black communities, and promoting a month-long  pledge to commit to vegan living during the month of February.

.

AVS will provide resources, support, and community to those who take the Veguary Pledge with vegan recipes, online cooking demonstrations, virtual education sessions and panels, daily email updates, live Q&A sessions, exclusive prizes and discounts from vegan brands, and interactive check-ins through our Veguary Facebook group -- all provided free of charge. There are over 20 Black vegan speakers confirmed for this event so far including: Seba Johnson, history-making Olympian; Dr. Milton Mills, critical care physician featured in the documentary What the Health; celebrity chef Rain Truth, and Dr. Ruby Lathon, certified holistic nutritionist also featured in the documentary What the Health.

 

Some of the major themes to be explored during Veguary include: transitioning to vegan living, the legacy of plant-based traditions in Black communities, plant-based health and wellness, making plant foods accessible in marginalized communities, the global + environmental impact of our food choices, and veganism as a part of a holistic world view to resisting oppression in all of its forms

 

Afro-Vegan Society is a national nonprofit organization with a mission to provide resources and support to help people in marginalized communities transition to vegan living.
