Don’t forget that New York City’s (and America’s) first Veggie Pride Parade ever kicks off at Noon on Sunday, May 18th in Greenwich Village!
Veg*n individuals and groups such as VegOut and Black Vegetarian Society of New York will march, then culminate for a festival in Washington Square Park. Entertainment includes rock music performed by Cheryl Hill, lectures from Karen Davis (founder of United Poultry Concerns) and Odette J. Wilkens, Esq. (executive director of The Equal Justice Alliance, a coalition dedicated to the repeal of the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act), and exhibitions from activist groups and corporations like League of Humane Voters of NYC, VegNews magazine and Wildwood Organics.
Check out amNY‘s cheery May 12th article on the parade.
