We're Vegan & We Love You.
Compassion Is Everything.
Since we opened Herbivore in 2002, we've learned a lot. We've welcomed non-vegans, not-quite-yet-vegans, and 100% vegans from all walks of life, for all reasons (health, environment, animals). We've learned more about the intersectional nature of suffering and discrimination throughout the years, but we know there is always more to learn and more to do. That's what we're reflecting on this pride month-- how can we be doing MORE for marginalized people?
This week, Herbivore donated to the local Q Center. Q Center offers a variety of peer-taught programs for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as veterans, seniors, and much more. These programs foster community by supporting LGBTQA+ people and offering a safe place for them to share their experiences.
Q Center's Resilience Campaign needs to raise $25,000 by July 1st in order to revitalize their space. They receive over 20,000 visits a year, and members of the Portland community depend on the Q Center.
LGBTQA+ people in Portland and beyond deserve access to a safe space for their community. The importance of that is paramount.
Donate today, and help support your LGBTQA+ community! #CompassionIsInvincible #BeKind #TheWorldWillChangeIfWeDo
P.S. Herbivore wants to hear from you!
