The NY Vegan Living Program (VLP) is FREE and being co-organized by Open the Cages Alliance (OTCA) and the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College for new and aspiring vegans, or individuals just interested in veganism.
Pre-registered Vegan Pledges pledge to live vegan for the duration of the program (approximately one month) with the help of volunteer Vegan Coaches, the VLP educational sessions and materials, and the supportive, encouraging community that forms at each year’s program. The goal of the VLP is to springboard participants into lifelong vegan living. OTCA also runs a program in Baltimore, Maryland in early Spring.
