Actor Tabitha Brown, who went viral after posting a vegan ‘bacon’ recipe on TikTok, is to feature as a guest speaker as part of The Vegan Women Summit’s Virtual Gathering series.

Brown, alongside filmmaker Jasmine Levuya and activist Haile Thomas, will discuss the intersectionality of race and veganism.

‘Become a better ally’

Speaking to VegOut, Founder of The Vegan Women Summit (VWS) Jennifer Stojkovic said: “This event, which is the ninth in our Virtual Gathering Series, will bring together three of our returning speakers for a crucial conversation on the intersection of race and veganism.

“We hope this event provides a learning opportunity for our attendees to better understand how supporting the Black community intersects with supporting the vegan community, why this work is important, and how they can become a better ally.”

‘Incredible speakers’

The event, which is free to attend, takes place on June 23 from 7 pm – 8 pm (CDT) – with limited spots available.

Stojkovic added: “VWS events are open to attendees from all backgrounds. We encourage any and all who are interested in learning from these incredible speakers to attend.”
