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 campaign 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.
