Sustainable. Heart-healthy. Compassionate.
Learn what's behind the buzz words connected to a plant-based lifestyle from the professionals - doctors, nutritionists, animal lawyers, activists, environmental scientists, philosophers, and more. Through guest speakers, film discussions, field trips, and more, Master Veg participants will sharpen their skills in advocating for a vegan lifestyle as a keystone to supporting a just, compassionate, and sustainable world. Over eight sessions, participants will build community through both interactive in-person sessions and in a private online group.
