In 2003, members of Portland’s vegan community came together to create an organization to bring awareness to the transformative power of a vegan lifestyle. The last ten years have seen veganism move from the fringe to the mainstream, and Northwest VEG is at the forefront of that movement in the Portland/Vancouver metro area.
Join us in celebrating ten years of educating and encouraging people to make vegan choices for a healthy, sustainable, and compassionate world at our first ever Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser! The 10th Anniversary Celebration is a chance to look back on years past, commemorate our accomplishments, and support our future!

* Michael A. Webermann is the Executive Director of Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), where he works with communities across the US and abroad to promote vegan eating and justice for animals. He oversees the Sustained Vegan Advocacy approach to reducing the number of animals raised and killed for food; produces literature, advertisements, and videos that expose animal agribusiness; determines how to best bring these messages to key target audiences; and helps develop follow-up resources to make the vegan path fun and easy.
Michael grew up in Southern California and migrated up north for college - first to San Francisco and finally to Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, where he earned his degree in Environmental Economics and Policy. While Michael now works out of Washington DC, he is excited for every opportunity he gets to come back to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
