We educate and encourage people to make vegan choices for a healthy, sustainable, and compassionate world.


Northwest VEG is dedicated to bringing awareness to the power of a plant-based, vegan lifestyle and helping support people in their transition toward making healthier, more sustainable & compassionate food choices. We welcome everyone and encourage you to explore the issues at your own pace. 

Did you miss May’s incredible Portland potluck presentation? Watch it now. Zimbabwean Attorney Ever Chinoda, founder of the nonprofit Speak Out For Animals, joins with Attorney Winnie Onkoba, who is setting up a similar nonprofit in Kenya, to describe the state of animal welfare in Africa, and their intentions to counter a cultural tradition of bias which doesn't recognize animal rights. These two animal protection advocates and pioneers talk about their experiences in animal welfare issues in Africa and the work they are planning to do with the knowledge they have gained from recent participation in Lewis & Clark's Animal Law LLM program.
