What you'll learn in this lecture class:

Holidays can be hard for vegans, but no holiday is more difficult than celebrating what we are thankful for with a Turkey for dinner.

The vegan movement is on the rise and more people are embracing a plant-based lifestyle for health, climate change, and animal welfare reasons. Join us to learn about the varied benefits of a plant-based diet and steps we can take to reduce or eliminate meat consumption. Don’t let anyone miss out on Thanksgiving dinner this year – join the conversation about how to integrate veganism into the things we’re grateful for.

What You’ll Learn:

  • The connection between veganism and a more sustainable future
  • Everyday practices to reduce or eliminate your meat intake
  • The power of plant-based diets in preventing and reversing chronic illness
  • Why communities of color are turning to plant-based nutrition
  • How innovative companies are producing plant-based food in new, sustainable ways
  • Ways to spice up your vegan recipes for Thanksgiving dinner
  • Career opportunities in innovative meat-alternative companies
