The Vegan Living Program is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) organization that provides month-long series of educational and social events for new and aspiring vegans. Our free mentorship programs are designed to assist and support participants as they transition to lifelong vegan living, and to build community to provide sustained support.


We promote compassionate, healthy and environmentally responsible vegan lifestyles, helping people make life-affirming choices and become more responsible planetary citizens.


Vegan Living Programs have been held with overwhelming success since 2011 and in 5 cities, helping more than 1300 people to live vegan.

"I recommend this excellent program to anyone who is interested in learning more about the vegan perspective. The presentations are informative and practical. Myths are dispelled here. Yes, it is possible to get enough protein on a vegan diet, and vegan food can be delicious! More importantly, people who care about the impact they have on their fellow beings, and on the environment, come together to explore the possibilities for change."
