Promoting Veganism in NYC – Union Square Park

April 21 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm GMT-0400

Vegan Menu

Promoting Veganism in NYC – Union Square Park – SW corner of the park at E. 14th St. & Union Square W. Look for the “Veg Meetup” sign.

Our meetup is relaunching vegan advocacy with our 1st leafleting event in over 2 years – on Thursday, April 21st! Earth Day is the next day and the weather is getting nicer – so the time is right.

This event will be outreach to the general public to promote and encourage a vegan diet & lifestyle, with an emphasis on the environmental connection. We will hand out literature in a welcoming manner so passers-by will get info on how great the benefits of veganism are for people, the non-human animals who share our world, and the planet itself.

We will meet at the designated location in Union Square at 6:45 pm (please arrive on time!). A brief overview on leafleting strategy/best practices will be given as a refresher and for anyone new to leafleting. In addition to a few reminders, we will break up into groups of 2 or 3 and assign different locations around Union Square. The leafleting time period is approximately 7 to 8 pm.

We know that not everyone in our group is vegan, but on this day we will be promoting veganism – clearly, thoughtfully, and in a positive manner. The goal for leafleting is to hand out as much literature as possible to those who seem interested; prolonged conversations and debates are not encouraged for this event.

We would like to see a diverse group of volunteers who want to help educate the public in a positive and friendly way – so sign up and come on out. No previous experience is necessary, just your perseverance and positive energy.

Where to meet: We will be meeting at the extreme southwest corner of Union Square Park, where Union Square West meets East 14th Street. We’ll meet on the actual park block, right on the corner. You will see us holding a “VEG MEETUP” sign. We will meet right at 6:45pm. You may want to plan on being there early in order to be on time. Please don’t be late!

For those able, we will meet back at the designated meeting point at 8 pm to do a debrief and share our experiences.

Grass-roots activism is vital in advancing the ideal, practice, and normalization of veganism in our world. So let’s come together and do this, and also have fun while doing it!
