Sponsor the Conference

In 2013, the Sistah Vegan Project had its first Bi-Annual Conference called “Embodied and Critical Perspectives on Veganism by Black Women and Allies.” It was an enormous success and people still continue to download the recorded lectures (free downloads but you need to register). Audience members write me frequently to tell me how empowering the conference was for them, in terms of understanding how critical issues around race, gender, whiteness, and socio-economic class influence one’s sense of vegan and anti-racism praxis.

 For our 2015, we are putting together another conference called “The Vegan Praxis of ‘Black Lives Matter’: Challenging Neoliberal Whiteness While Building Anti-Racist Solidarity Among Vegans of Color and Allies (Before, After, and Beyond Ferguson ).”

It is scheduled for April 24-25, 2015. It will be two days long this time and there will be keynote talks, discussion, and workshops. The entire conference will be online and recorded and accessible for download later if registrants can’t participate in real time.  

 We are looking for sponsors for this event and invite your organization or business to consider sponsoring us.  Last year, A Well Fed World, The Vegan Society, Vine Sanctuary, and VegFund proudly sponsored us. This year, we seek financial sponsorship or raffle item contributions. With your support, we will be able to pay the keynote speakers, offer scholarships for those who cannot pay the registration fee, pay to advertise the event, pay for webinar services, as well as pay for other services and things to make this conference possible. If you are able to sponsor us, we will post your logo on our conference page, with a link to your site.
