Los Angeles Veggie Pride Parade for vegans and vegetarians and veg-friendly folks:
Sunday, April 26, 11 am – 4 pm
New York City Veggie Pride Parade for vegans and vegetarians and veg-friendly folks:
SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2009
A pride parade is to express and experience community. It's to participate in something fun. And it's to raise awareness.
When we march down the street with signs that say "go vegan" or "stop eating animals" or "proud vegan" or "eat like you give a damn" we're showing the world that:
- we don't look like they imagined we did; we come in various sizes, shapes, colors, and age
- we are joyous and fun-loving
- we are organized and powerful
- our numbers are growing; more and more people are going vegetarian or vegan every day
Having participated in last years NYC parade and planning to attend this year's LA parade, I can tell you that part of my reason for attending is to be a part of history. We WILL make a difference. These parades will grow and grow and so will our movement. Just watch.
