RECAP: Navigating Veganism in Communities of Color Panel
We’re still feeling so much inspiration and energy from the panel discussion on May 9th, “Navigating Veganism in Communities of Color”, hosted by Todo Verde as part of the LA Times Food Bowl. Many in the audience expressed feelings of solidarity and mutual understanding of the unique challenges faced by people of color who choose to be vegan. Topics discussed included, how culture shaped our journey to veganism, decolonized/indigenous diets, health aspects of a plant based diet, and how various vegan communities intersect.
We hope this conversation can continue on and expand to include many other diverse voices. If you’re interested in staying up to date with future talks and discussions, sign up for our newsletter below!
