Afro-Vegan Society aims to create a more just and sustainable future through this free online event.
The Afro-Vegan Society will host a virtual summit this November. The National Afro-Vegan Virtual Summit will be a free online event featuring informative panels with guest speakers, plant-based chefs, and medical professionals who promote plant-based eating and a vegan lifestyle.
In addition, keynote sessions and cooking demos will also be included in the event. Past events have featured plant-based doctor panels, cooking demos, wellness sessions, and keynote speakers who highlight the benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle.
“The Afro-Vegan Conference Virtual Summit was inspired by our commitment to offer the most current, culturally relevant resources and information to support and inspire people from marginalized communities to begin making healthier, kinder, more sustainable choices,” Brenda Sanders, Founder & Executive Director of Afro-Vegan Society, told VegOut.
