VivaVegie is deeply saddened by the passing of Karen Davis (12/4/23). She will be greatly missed by so many, but her legacy will surely live on for generations. As a leading voice in the vegan movement, we were immensely honored that Karen attended nearly every Veggie Pride Parade NYC between 2008 and 2017. Click for a comprehensive look at her participation in the parade, just a small contribution to the vegan cause—among so many—that she made throughout her rich life.
Pamela Rice, under the auspices of VivaVegie Society organized 10 annual Veggie Pride Parades in New York City. The non-sectarian event drew leaders and compassionate activist from all the major vegan organizations of the time. It lived on with Maggie Sargent for 4 additional years.

Beginning in 1990—and continuing for roughly 15 years—VivaVegie founder Pamela Rice and volunteers regularly engaged in friendly and colorful street advocacy for veganism. First, they would creatively dress up and pen catchy signage. Then, they would use Pamela's pamphlet—"101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian"—to great effect convincing passersby to consider the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. Click for images and other memorabilia.
There's been a lot of water under the bridge since 1991 when VivaVegie Society was founded. So many projects, so many campaigns. Unfortunately, the Web site in recent years was neglected. But, with a little help, the current redesign of VivaVegie.org will soon rise to greatness again. Explore the new—albeit not quite finished—site, and stay tuned for a plethora of even more posts from the old days: images, videos, writings, etc., as well as contemporary commentary on current events, hard-news vegan style.
