Hundreds of people gathered at UC Berkeley this weekend to explore veganism, including the belief that humans are herbivores, not carnivores or omnivores.
The list of topics throughout the three-day World Vegan Summit & Expo was exhaustive and included “the ethics and morality of eating animals, veganic gardening, health crises in communities of color, vegan dogs and cats, animals in western culture, ayurvedic anti-aging secrets, veganism and intersectionality, supporting vegan restaurants and businesses, healthy and happy vegan children animals and capitalism, Mexican culture and veganism, and what’s wrong with the big “animal welfare” organizations,” according to a press release.
On Friday, the event sponsored a “Vegan (Because We Care) Walk” from People’s Park to the Cal campus.
