At present, entrepreneurship is not equitable and we want to recognize the barriers that Black individuals and businesses have to overcome on a daily basis. Diversity in our community promotes productivity, economic vitality, and growth and we are committed to providing content that supports this.

VeganZine stands in solidarity with the Black community and will continuously work on our allyship both online and in the ‘real’ world. In lieu of a single business or brand to feature; this month we will spotlight local, vegan-friendly Black owned businesses and Black creators. Please note this is a working list and will be updated regularly.
