Event Description
Event hosted by London Vegan Meetup.

NEW DATE. NEW LOCATION.

London Vegan Voices is a collaboratively-run London-based vegan group that runs monthly meetings, screened in a closed Facebook group for those who cannot attend. London Vegan Voices has three primary aims:

1. Learning focused: To promote greater awareness and understanding of the ways in which veganism / speciesism interacts with other forms of oppression and how we can, as a community, promote the voices of marginalised members of our community; vegans of colour and others who can be silenced and experience oppression within our spaces.

2. Highlighting marginalised voices: To promote the work and voices of vegans of colour and other marginalised members of our community through community spotlights, talks and on-line resources sharing.

3. Building community: Creating a London-based group of individuals working toward making a space that is as inclusive as possible and, together, working with vegan spaces in and around London. This includes catering our monthly meetings with interesting speakers, covering a diverse range of topics relevant to London vegans.

Please feel free to come with items to add to the agenda! The aim of this monthly meetup is to learn from each other, to debate, to listen, to inform, to understand, to highlight grassroots community projects and actions, to support smaller vegan organisations and businesses by offering a “community spotlight” platform, to organise direct action and learning platforms, and to offer a welcoming space for allies.

Food and drinks are available for purchase, but you are under no obligation to do so. However, please do not bring your own food, out of respect for the venue that is being provided free of charge.

If you would like to be involved in planning or have suggestions, please contact Farrah.

ATTENDANCE

This event is organised by London Vegan Voices, but London Vegan Meetup members are welcome. As with all London Vegan Meetup events, there will be a London Vegan Meetup host available to welcome you, and introduce you to other members.

This group is open to ALL vegans, whether you live in London or not. There is no level of knowledge you need to attend. HOWEVER, this space aims to make all participants feel as safe and comfortable as possible by prohibiting any hate speech or discrimination of any kind. As this group is based around learning and supporting one another, we encourage all members to help each other grow, while being open to growing ourselves. It is therefore required that all participants do not support oppression of any kind and are interested in working together to actively dismantle these systems within our communities and the broader society.
