Raising the Voices of Vegans of Color

 

VoC Banner

 

In collaboration with TAVS – The Advocacy of Veganism Society and the VoC community, Sanctuary Publishers‘ newest book project will work to help raise the voices of vegans of color in an effort to speak up on behalf of nonhuman animals.

Vegans of color have stories to tell—stories about what veganism means to us and our communities. Because of this, we will be working to publish a two volume book set to help vegans of color gain visibility while in turn, continue to help spread veganism within our communities.

Profits from the two volumes will also help sponsor a pro-intersectional veganism starter kit booklet – the first of its kind.

Vegans artists and authors of color are welcome to make submissions towards the books. Guidelines for the types of submissions welcomed can be found on the publishers’ submission page.

If you are not VoC but would still like to help this important project, you can volunteer to help with promotion when the time comes or with graphic design.

You may also help support this project through donations.

Thank you – we are thrilled to bring this work to fruition!
