Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 17, 2009!
UPC President Karen Davis & fellow activists led the Parade in 2008
Please join UPC President Karen Davis and United Poultry Concerns at the Second Annual Veggie Pride Parade in New York City, Sunday May 17th. Last year's Parade - the brainchild of Pamela Rice, founder of the VivaVegie Society - was a huge success. The New York Times, Associated Press and many other media around the country covered the 2008 Veggie Pride Parade, which brought 500 people and advocacy groups together in Greenwich Village to celebrate and promote the benefits and joy of a vegan diet and lifestyle.
This year's Parade will be even Bigger and Better!
Procession starts at Noon - lineup at 11 a.m. - in the Old Meat District in Greenwich Village where Little West 12th St., Gansevoort St., Greenwich Street & 9th Avenue converge. Endpoint for the Parade is Union Square Park (north end) featuring exhibitors, entertainment and speakers - including UPC and Karen Davis - live on stage! For more information, call 212-242-0011 or visit www.veggieprideparade.org/.
