Building on the overwhelming success of previous parades, this year's march through Greenwich Village will bring hundreds of vegans and vegetarians together to express their veggie pride. With inspiring talks by more than a dozen leaders in the animal rights and vegetarian movements and a festival of music, what better time and place to raise awareness about the lifesaving work of Mercy For Animals?
The Veggie Pride Parade will start at 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 16 in the West Village, where Little West 12th St., Gansevoort St., Greenwich St. and 9th Avenue converge. Tabling for the event starts at 1 p.m. in Union Square Park, where the parade will end.

The NYC Animal Advocacy Network is your portal into the animal rights landscape in New York City. A quick check on our calendar will let you know activities and events are going on around town.
We are here to inform you of and participate in high-visibility demos, low-key advocacy and everything in between. So if you want to DO something for the animals and meet like-minded people, this is the Meetup for you!
We are also committed to building community by organizing joint events with our sister veg Meetups, participating in potlucks and supporting local businesses by dining out. Further, we coordinate book clubs, outings to film screenings, lectures, presentations and workshops. Grass roots!
But above all, we need YOU to join us and bring your energy, ideas, event notifications and passion for compassion! New AOs and guest hosts are welcome!
