A Vegans-of-Color Community-Led Project by VoC for PoC
Forget everything you’ve heard from mainstream white veganism; this isn’t a book about single-issue advocacy through the most privileged of lenses.
Veganism of Color is a compilation of writings from seldom-heard voices of color drowned out by the same white noise that systematically oppresses us all– vegan or not. This community-led effort is a call from Vegans of Color to People of Color to decenter whiteness and work towards dismantling a form of oppression that, although very different, interconnects with our own.
Embracing a social justice spectrum that is aware of, and working against, all forms of supremacy is a must if we are going to achieve true liberation from systems of oppression for ourselves and other marginalized communities.
