So today history was made, literally. Mayor Nancy McFarlane of Raleigh, North Carolina issued a Proclamation declaring October 2016 – Vegan Awareness Month. When I saw this I was super excited because there are so many misconceptions about being vegetarian, vegan, and / or plant-based. Prayerfully this will allow information to be disseminated that dispels these myths and allows people in this community and surrounding areas to make informed decisions about how they want to eat.
Read the proclamation below, it is definitely a WIN for every one.
Thank you to Triangle Vegfest for all your hard work and efforts on this undertaking. Your continued work in, for, and around vegan living is commendable AND appreciated.
