This Week in NJ


Vegan in NJ has started a Patreon page and we would love it if you could donate any amount you could. We will be working on setting up tiers as time goes on, but for right now, you will just get access to our feed, where we will be working through ideas and events we plan to host in the future. This will be a great place for you to have your voice heard about how we can make NJ the most vegan friendly place it can be!

If you are hosting an event or know of an event happening that you do not see on our events page, please send an email to cherise@veganinnj.com and I'll add it to the page ASAP and include it in my weekly breakdown.

November 1st is World Vegan Day and day 1 of World Vegan Month. If you're on the edge about going vegan, give it a shot this month. Give yourself a 30 day vegan challenge! Join our Facebook group to find answers to many questions you probably have or check out websites like Challenge 22 (a 22 day challenge) or Veganuary (usually made for those trying to make their new year's resolution to go vegan, eat plant based, or live a more compassionate life). You can also use resources like those that Vegan Outreach or Mercy for Animals offers. Long story short, a vegan is a person who does not eat, purchase, or use any animal products or by products. We do not participate in any form of animal exploitation, such as zoos or aquariums. As far as diet goes, we eat plants! We do not eat meat, fish, dairy, eggs, or honey.

There will be a dance class hosted in Neptune Twp for World Vegan Day on Thursday. It's $15 at the door. Singles or couples are welcome. You can call 732-898–7111 and ask for Travis with any questions or for more information that is not available on the Facebook event.

Friday is the second of the month, which means Animals First on the Second is upon us again. If you've never heard of this, that's okay, now is a great time to start! We fast on the second of every month, mark an "x" inside a circle on our hands and the conversations will come to you. Learn more about what this all is and why this was started on the AFOTS website, including information on how to get started and participate.

Saturday, November 3 is International Cube Day for Anonymous for the Voiceless. There will be a TON of events happening on this day all over the world. We have several happening in our area, including Atlantic County, Monmouth County, New Brunswick, Philadelphia, and Long Island. Rutgers Veg Society has planned a day around the New Brunswick cube, so if you're in the area, meet them at the student activities center to carpool to Tamerlaine Animal Sanctuary for a tour, then grab some food at Veggie Heaven before heading back to set up the New Brunswick Cube of Truth.
