The first Veggie Pride Parade in America brought more than 500 people together in Greenwich Village, New York City, on May 18, 2008. It was a thrilling day for activists, animals and vegan advocacy. United Poultry Concerns and other participating organizations were cited in articles about the Parade in The New York Times and many other news media. Beautifully costumed Carrots and Peas joined the procession.

As noted by The New York Times, “The parade was the brainchild of Pamela Rice [founder of the VivaVegie Society], the author of a widely distributed pamphlet [and book], “101 Reasons Why I’m a Vegetarian.” Pamela deserves a standing ovation for creating this wonderful and inspiring event. Thank you, Pamela!
