Afrovegan Fest Montréal is a non-profit organization whose mission is to:

  • Inform the Montreal community about Afro-veganism
  • Organize socio-cultural activities about Afro-veganism in Montreal
  • Take a stand on publicly debated issues that impact veganism and the status of Black people 
  • Promote access to resources that support food sovereignty in Black and Indigenous communities
  • Promote an intersectional approach in which environmental justice and food insecurity are deconstructed
  • To promote an Afro-veganism that does not pretend to be unique, but rather unified and within which each individual can emancipate and affirm himself

What is Afro-veganism?

The term "Black Veganism" was coined by sisters Syl and Aph Ko in their political essay "Aphro-ism: Essays on Pop Culture, Feminism, and Black Veganism from Two Sisters."

Afro-veganism is a decolonial and intersectional movement that views veganism from the perspective of Black people in all its forms and realities.

Environmental justice, anti-speciesism, food sovereignty, health, and the reclaiming of Afro-descendant culinary heritage by Black people all across the diaspora is central to Afro-veganism.
