GLOBAL VEGAN REGISTRY
Having been fully vegan since 1968, I’ve heard hundreds, if not thousands, of derogatory comments, complaints and criticisms that were expressed by vegans toward and against the rest of the world which seems to have lost its humanity, compassion and empathy. What stands out most prominently is the fact that all too many vegans feel isolated and alone, especially those living in remote areas. Also, most vegans are surrounded by carnists who don’t understand them and the ‘unconventional’ choices they are making, which generates resentment and ill-feelings. The overwhelming majority of vegans would indeed like to do more to improve the existing state of affairs around the world but effective activism feels like an exhausting uphill struggle that is doomed to fail, especially when undertaken singlehanded.
I’ve decided to generate and manage this Global Vegan Registry for the following reasons:
a) To give vegans a communal sense of belonging even with those vegans living on the other side of the globe.
b) To provide vegans with a resource through which they will be able to easily reach out to other like-minded vegans.
c) To create a cohesively united front that will afford vegans greater influence for evoking change and advocating common causes, because there is strength in numbers.
d) To get a better sense of how many vegans populate the world and where they are found.
For this project to be successful, I will need your cooperation. So, please submit the following:
… YOUR FIRST NAME (not full name)
… YOUR CITY, STATE & COUNTRY (not street address)
… THE DATE YOU BECAME VEGAN
… YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS (optional but highly desirable)
… YOUR FACEBOOK ADDRESS
… ANY MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION YOU CARE TO SHARE
Your submissions can be received as private messages at the following Facebook pages: Sprout A Vegan, Hanna V. Golan or Vegan Blogger.
To enlist as many vegans as possible, please ‘SHARE’ this on your Facebook page and on the wall of any vegan Facebook group to which you might belong. If you know vegans who do not participate online, please get permission to gather their information and submit it for them.
This Global Vegan Registry, by the way, is posted and regularly updated on the Global Vegan Registry private Facebook group page to which ONLY those who signed up for the Registry will have access.
Let us together create the peaceful and verdant world that it’s intended to be.
Thank you, fellow vegans!
