Texas Go Vegan Week: History
TEXAS GO VEGAN WEEK
Join us in celebrating and promoting vegan living in Texas!
OCTOBER 1 - 7
Presented by Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E.
In 2006, our nonprofit organization's co-founders created the Texas Veggin'-out Days campaign. It was launched as a way to support our vegan & vegetarian establishments in Texas and to bring recognition to World Vegetarian Day (October 1) and World Farm Animals Day (October 2).
Our campaign was recognized by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) in 2007, when we were awarded "Most Notable Outreach by a Group". Co-founders Kristen Lee Ohanyan & Tosh Schurz were featured in the NAVS magazine for their innovative thinking. Since the beginning, it has been supported by Vegan Meetups throughout Texas, various animal rights groups in the state and the member groups of the Lone Star Vegetarian Network (LSVN).
In 2011, our campaign expanded to a week-long celebration and education campaign promoting vegan living called "TEXAS GO VEGAN WEEK". This was the first ever week-long vegan celebration in the state of Texas! Our campaign also kicks-off the start of Vegetarian Awareness Month outreach.
Please join us in supporting all vegan food establishments and vendors in Texas during our annual campaign! You can also support this campaign by hosting an event in your city between October 1 and 7.
