Description

The Veg Society of DC (VSDC) Vegan Thanksgiving Celebration is an annual event that brings together vegans, vegetarians, and non-vegetarians to enjoy compassionate and healthy vegan food in a wonderful and warm social setting.

The 2019 VSDC Thanksgiving Celebration will be held on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, from 12-4pm at the Grand Hyatt Washington.

VSDC is excited to announce that our featured speaker this year will be Erica Meier, president of Compassion Over Killing, a non-profit animal protection organization based in Washington, DC.

The event programming also includes exhibitors, exciting door prizes, a silent auction fundraiser, an all-ages kids activity, and live music. So join us to celebrate with hundreds of people with a gourmet, all-vegan feast!

We have a delicious and abundant menu planned. The buffet is all-vegan, with non-GMO ingredients, and many gluten-free options.

The Grand Hyatt is providing a vegan cash bar.

More on Erica Meier:
Since 1995, COK has worked to expose farmed animal abuse and promote veg-friendly eating by employing a variety of strategies, including hard-hitting undercover investigations, groundbreaking pro-active litigation, successful corporate campaigns, and empowering public outreach programs.

In addition to ending the egg industry’s misleading “Animal Care Certified” claim, under Erica’s leadership, COK has persuaded food giants including Subway, Dunkin Donuts, BOCA Foods and Morningstar Farms to add vegan options to their menus. Erica has also appeared in several major news stories on CNN, ABC’s Nightline News, the Washington Post, LA Times, and more.

These accomplishments along with many more earned her the coveted National Animal Rights Hall of Fame award in 2013.

Before working at COK, Erica served as an animal control officer in Washington DC, rescuing sick, injured, and homeless animals as well as enforcing animal protection laws.
