Vegans for Peace

Vegans for Peace:

Our biggest and most exciting event of the year!

This will be the third year we participate in the “Mass Moral March” in downtown Raleigh. Organized by the NAACP and supported by a coalition of over 200 progressive groups, this annual event draws upwards of 10,000 people.

Last year, we had over 150 vegans participate. This year, we expect even more. People from all over NC (and beyond) will be joining us! This event offers us a unique opportunity to stand in solidarity with others who are fighting for basic human rights and environmental justice. At the same time, this is a golden opportunity for us to educate others about animal rights and the devastating environmental impacts of animal agriculture.

We’ll meet in front of Living Kitchen, 555 Fayetteville St., at 8:30 a.m. Pre-rally begins at 9:00 a.m. The actual march begins at 10:00 a.m and should conclude by 12:30. Afterward, we’ll meet for lunch (location TBD).

We’ll carry our banner, wave flags and hold signs with peaceful messages expressing love, compassion and respect for all living beings. In order to have a unified presence, we will be offering discounted Vegans for Peace t-shirts. Signs will be provided. We prefer to have a unified and cohesive presence under the banner of Vegans for Peace.

Last year was a truly exciting and memorable event that helped mobilize our community. Together, we can make this event even bigger as we show NC the beauty and promise of veganism! For a better understanding of what past marches have looked like, watch this video: https://youtube.com/watch?v=zkOP2-9d04o.

If you would like to help organize, please let us know in the comments. We need volunteers to help with photography, video, directing participants/selling t-shirts, point people to direct traffic, organize lunch, etc. If you are in need of a ride or a place to stay, please see the thread in the discussion below. In the coming months, we’ll post a link so you can see if a bus is coming from your area. We will do our very best to help everyone make it.

As you’re able, donations are appreciated to help cover the cost of signs, rental space for lunch, flags, food, etc: https://paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/1593884. If you haven’t already, please join our Meetup group and mailing list to stay informed of future events: http://vegansforpeace.org. Our FB group is: http://facebook.com/groups/vegansforpeace

Let’s continue to inspire and support one another as we work to lay the foundation for a peaceful, nonviolent world!
