What we're about

Let's get all of the South Bay vegans together! One thing I love about the vegan community is how supportive and loving everyone is. A vegan lifestyle is something I am passionate about, for the animals, myself and for our planet. I think it's important we all band together to enjoy each other, all the vegan food and to do what we can to help others join us.

Let's have potlucks to share recipes, check out new vegan restaurants, and veganize menu items at our favorite local spots. We can also have discussions and Q&A meetings for those that may need support in their vegan journey. I'd also love for us to get involved with our community, such as local activism and preparing plant-based meals for the homeless. There are endless options and I am open to suggestions.

I am sure each of you has a story as to how you got here, so let's learn about each other and help others to see every benefit of our amazing lifestyle. The animals need us, the Earth needs us and WE need us!

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way" -Martin Luther King Jr.

I hope to see you all soon! Everyone is welcome, vegans and those that aren't vegan YET! :) We are here to eat, share and spread the love.

Towards Freedom is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization Pets are not allowed except for service animals. We are so sorry to say that due to strict Health Department regulations and liability issues we are unable to accommodate your dogs (even on-leash) at the event this year. We are all animal- lovers and this is really disappointing for us. If it was possible for us to have them, we would! However, you can still get your “dog-fix” and all the dog-licks you can handle by visiting the many adoptable dogs from rescue organizations that will be available at the festival. Service animals are allowed.
