LONG ISLAND VEGAN LIVING PROGRAM
2020 Long Island Vegan Living Program Cancelled
We hope this message finds you well in a time that is challenging for many. Our participants' health and safety is extremely important to us, which is why we made the decision to cancel portions of our 2020 Pasadena Vegan Living Program (VLP), and postpone the Long Island to a potential autumn date. Thank you for bearing with us in the months since as we all navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At this point, we must sadly announce that our regularly scheduled programming is cancelled for the remainder of 2020, including our Long Island and Syracuse programs, and the annual Holiday Party on Long Island.
Under current public health advisories and the protocols our venues have in place for visitors’ safety, the in-person interactions that form the backbone of our successful mentorship programs are not possible. It will of course depend on developments in the coming months with regard to public health, and the safety of in-person gatherings, but we fully intend to hold VLP sessions on something close to our regular schedule in 2021.
As always, our programs are 100% volunteer-run, and made possible by the generosity of people like you. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation towards our future programming to support and educate new vegans, please use the Donate button below. Thank you for your ongoing support, and please stay safe.
2021 Dates TBA
Want to go vegan, but need some help and support? Be a Vegan Pledge in the 2020 Long Island Vegan Living Program! The Vegan Living Program (VLP) is a FREE educational program that covers the how’s and why’s of living vegan, including the ethical and environmental considerations of veganism, nutrition, cooking, meal planning, and living vegan in a not-yet-vegan world. Participants pledge to live vegan for the duration of the program, with the help of volunteer Vegan Coaches and our educational program. Pledges receive a binder full of resources and recipes, and a goody bag of free vegan stuff to make the transition easier and more fun!
It’s clear that more and more of us are interested in addressing animal exploitation, tackling climate change, and concerned about our own health. In fact, according to search engine giant Google, the search interest for “vegan” is on the rise, increasing 32% in recent years. Whatever your motivation, the Vegan Living Program is designed to provide you with the support you need, and to build a community of like-minded individuals.
The Vegan Living Program has been held with overwhelming success since 2011, helping more than 1000 people to live vegan. This will be the seventh year we have offered the VLP on Long Island, along with co-organizers, the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College. Join us in 2021 for this life-changing program!
"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."
