Also, two SuperVegans, Jason Das and Deborah Diamant, founded Vegan Drinks to coax area vegans out from behind their computers once a month. NYC Vegan Drinks is cosponsored by SuperVegan, the Brooklyn Law School chapter of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund and Angels & Kings Bar. But Vegan Drinks have started popping up all over–there are VDs in 15 other cities right now, I think. It just keeps growing.
If you’re not vegan, go vegan! And if you are vegan, talk to people about why you made the switch. The more people know about animal exploitation and plant-based diets, the more likely they’ll be to give veganism a try. We need more plant eaters in the world!
