What is AZVegan?

AZVegan is a web site designed with the hopes of providing a comprehensive listing of animal rights/vegetarian/vegan events and information for people in Arizona.  By providing one site for all local events AZVegan hopes to unite individuals and groups with shared interests.

What is a vegan?

A vegan (pronounced VEE-gun) is someone who does not eat or use animal products or animal by-products; a strict vegetarian who does not eat eggs, or dairy products. The term vegan was coined in London in 1944 by Donald Watson, a founding member of the The Vegan Society in Great Britain.  He used the first three and last two letters of the word vegetarian to form the word vegan, because “veganism starts with vegetarianism and carries it through to its logical conclusion.”  Please take a moment to read the essay, “On Being Vegan” from Vegan Outreach.
