Veggie Pride Parade 2017 – the 10th Anniversary! – is an opportunity for all of us to show that veg values matter. These values place a high emphasis on the lives of animals, the health of the planet and the health of ourselves.
Tell your omnivorous friends that you’ll be marching, attending the rally or both. There will be much information for people to take away from this event.
There are many social justice movements happening simultaneously in our own community and the world at large. If you’ll pardon the reference, this is really all one big vegetable soup! Rights are rights. The right to simply be is important for every transgender, bisexual, lesbian and gay individual. It is of equal importance to every animal with whom we share this biosphere.
We have an amazing opportunity to learn much from each other and to teach others as well.
