NEW YORK CITY VEGGIE PRIDE PARADE By Rebecca Kaplan

At Manhattan’s Veggie Pride Parade this year, hundreds of vegans and vegetarians gathered to share the power of veggie eating! Participants marched from Ye Olde Meatpacking District all the way to Union Square, spreading the message that veganism can help us to save the planet, be kind to animals, and improve our personal health. Here’s pictures.

I staffed a booth at the parade for The Vegetarian Resource Group. The parade was lots of fun. We passed out pamphlets, the most popular being
Vegan Kids/Pregnancy
Vegan Teens
Veganism & Saving Our Water
Veganism in a Nutshell
I Love Animals and Broccoli Coloring Book

Three Spanish speaking people came by and were really glad we had information in Spanish. I gave our leftover pamphlets to the NYC Vegan & Vegetarian Meetup Group, which will give out the information at their events.

Thanks to everyone who braved the windy weather and came out to demonstrate at the parade!
