The Vegan Women Summit (VWS) educates, empowers, and inspires women leaders to spread compassion. The organization is hosting a Virtual Gathering special on June 23rd featuring vegan leaders across three generations. The interactive live event will feature speakers Jasmine Leyva (filmmaker and actress), Haile Thomas (compassion activist and content creator), and Tabitha Brown (vegan influencer and actress) to lead a discussion addressing the interconnectedness of supporting the Black community and supporting the vegan community.
Jennifer Stojkovic, Founder of VWS told VegOut, “This event, which is the ninth in our Virtual Gathering Series, will bring together three of our returning speakers for a crucial conversation on the intersection of race and veganism. We hope this event provides a learning opportunity for our attendees to better understand how supporting the Black community intersects with supporting the vegan community, why this work is important, and how they can become a better ally.”
The first ever Vegan Women Summit took place on February 1st 2020 in San Francisco, California. The event highlighted vegan women speakers in the plant-based industry including Miyoko Schinner, Jasmine Leyva, Aisha “Pinky” Cole, and more. The company launched an online Virtual Gathering Series in March 2020 designed to facilitate discussions, provide support, and educate the viewers.
Tune in on Tuesday June 23rd from 7pm to 8pm CDT. The event is free to attend, however spots are limited. Attendees also have the option to support the VWS with a donation. Jennifer stated, “VWS events are open to attendees from all backgrounds. We encourage any and all who are interested in learning from these incredible speakers to attend.”
