Vegans of Color

Because we don’t have the luxury of being single-issue

First Vegans of Color Meetup in NYC October 3, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — johanna @ 8:59 pm

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow VoC bloggers Kanika & Joselle, & VoC reader Winston, here in NYC at Strictly Roots.

Thanks everyone — it was awesome to meet you all (& Joselle’s partner Brian, not pictured). Here’s to more VoC in-person community building in the future!

(& on that note, any vegans of color living in or near Bristol, England, please get in touch, as I am moving there in a couple of weeks!)

    Hey VoC bloggers and readers. I wanted to share with you a blog I just wrote on racism and school foods. It deals with the high numbers in minority groups that are lactose intolerant and the fact that two servings of milk are mandatory in schools – ignoring the high numbers of students that can’t digest it properly.

    Check it out. I’d love your take:

    Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been out of the loop, have been battling a nasty respiratory virus the last few days 😦

    It was awesome meeting all of you guys! We have to do it again someday! I’d travel all over the globe to attend every VOC meetup if I could πŸ™‚

  7. WOW!!! That’s great! Please check out – we’ve been trying to accomplish a successful get together too!
